Agency Information Collection (Conflicting Interests Certification for Proprietary Schools) Under OMB Review, 13021 [2011-5328]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 46 / Wednesday, March 9, 2011 / Notices information collections that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such data uses require more rigorous designs that address: the target population to which generalizations will be made, the sampling frame, the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed sample size, the expected response rate, methods for assessing potential nonresponse bias, the protocols for data collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior fielding the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results.
