Performance and Efficiency Measure Results: 2008-09

The Department has calculated persistence, graduation and efficiency measures based upon the 2008-09 annual performance reports submitted by grantees. However, unlike years past where the freshmen cohort was based on a participant’s current grade level at the end of the reporting period, beginning with the 2008-09 GPRA, the freshmen cohort is defined as the participant’s grade level at entry into the project. The grade level at project entry is a better suited field to determine the participant’s grade level (i.e., freshman) because it captures a participant’s grade level at entry into the project which is a more accurate measurement of grade progression.

The 2008-09 results include grantee-level persistence and graduation rates.
