Performance Measures: Under GPRA, Federal departments and agencies must clearly describe the goals and objectives of programs, identify resources and actions needed to accomplish goals and objectives, develop a means of measuring progress made, and regularly report on achievement. One important source of program information on successes and lessons learned is the project evaluation conducted under individual grants. The Department has developed the following GPRA performance measures for evaluating the overall effectiveness of TCPCTIP projects: (a) The percentage of students mastering academic knowledge and skills that meet challenging Statedefined or program-defined academic standards, as measured by the percentage of career and technical education students who receive degrees, certificates, or credentials. (b) The percentage of students who meet State-established or programestablished industry-validated career and technical skills standards. (c) The percentage of programs offering skill competencies, related assessments, and industry-recognized skills certificates in postsecondary programs. (d) The percentage of students who are retained in, and complete postsecondary career and technical education programs. (e) The percentage of student placed in jobs, military service, or higher-level continuing education programs upon graduation or completion of the postsecondary career and technical education programs. Accordingly, each TCPCTIP grantee must assess progress on the above performance measures in evaluating the success of its project, and VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:50 May 14, 2007 Jkt 211001 provide, in its annual performance and final reports, data about its progress on these measures.
