2. What is the performance measure for this program and what will a grantee be required to do with regard to that performance measure?

The performance measure for the Excellence in Economic Education program is:

"The percentage of students of teachers trained under the grant project that demonstrate an improved understanding of personal finance and economics as compared to similar students whose teachers have not had the training provided by this project."

Under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA), the Secretary has established one performance objective and three performance measures to assess the effectiveness of this program. Projects funded under this competition will be expected to collect and report to the Department data related to these measures. Applications should, but are not required to, discuss in the application narrative how they propose to collect these data. The GPRA performance objective is: To increase students’ knowledge of, and achievement in, personal finance and economics to enable the students to become more productive and informed citizens. The three GPRA performance measures are: (1) the percentage of students participating in projects funded through the Excellence in Economic Education program who score proficient on standardized tests of economics and/or personal finance; (2) the percentage of teachers participating in projects funded by the Excellence in Economic Education program who show a significant increase in their pre-post scores on a standardized measure of economic content knowledge; and (3) the percentage of students participating in entrepreneurial projects funded by the Excellence in Economic Education program who show a significant increase in their pre-post scores on a standardized measure.
