information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of 
the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information

information on those who are to respond, including through the use of 
appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

    Type of Review: Revision.
    Title of Collection: Scholar Data Report: Personnel Development

    OMB Control Number: 1820-0530.
    Agency Form Number(s): N/A.

    Abstract: This package is a revision and contains instructions and 
the form necessary for grantees and contractors supported under the 
Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Personnel 
Development to Improve Services and Results for Children with 
Disabilities, CFDA No. 84.325. Data obtained are used to evaluate and 
monitor the implementation of IDEA and for performance reporting. 
Analysis of these data will be used in the following ways: (a) To 
inform the activities and priorities specific to personnel preparation 
conducted by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special 
Education Programs (OSEP); (b) to determine variation in personnel 
preparation and factors related to that variation; and (c) to evaluate 
the outcomes of the IDEA and the Personnel Development Program's 
performance measures under the Government Performance and Results Act 
and the Program Assessment Rating Tool. OSEP revisions have: (a) 
Modified items that collect information on scholars' knowledge and 
skills to reduce grantee work burden and to diminish response 
ambiguity, to simplify data entry and analysis, and to delete two items 
that were no longer needed; (b) added one item to determine whether the 
grantee expects the scholar to complete the program; (c) added two 
items to first section to determine if scholar received funding under a 
previous grant and the number of credit hours earned prior to starting 
the current grant program and that will be accepted for program 
completion; and (d) enhanced instructions for a few items to make the 
form more user-friendly and diminish response ambiguity.
