Transition to Teaching Individual Project Data Outcomes for GPRA Performance Measures
(As of September 30, 2007)

Background

In 2005, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) assessed the Transition to Teaching (TTT) grant program, along with several other Department of Education grant programs, using the Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART) process. In response to the assessment rating received, TTT program and management staff implemented several program improvements in the collection, organization, verification, analysis, and availability of the project performance data.

Beginning in 2008, performance data for the TTT program GPRA outcome measures for each project are available on the TTT website.
