Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 130 / Thursday, July 7, 2011 / Notices participants who participate in youth and leadership programs through ECA. • ECA/P/V: Youth and Leadership Programs: Pre Program Survey Questions: This collection will cover pre-program surveys. • ECA/P/V: Youth and Leadership Programs: Post Program Survey Questions: This collection will cover post program surveys • ECA/P/V: Youth and Leadership Programs: Follow-up Program Survey Questions: This collection will cover follow-up program surveys. Methodology ECA/P/V estimates that at least 90% of the data collected through these information collections will be done so electronically via a web-based surveying system for ease of use. Non-electronic means such as paper surveys will be used when electronic means are not technically feasible. Additional Information These three collections together represent the full spectrum of the performance measurement process (i.e. a pre-program, post-program, and follow-up program surveying), and data collected across these collections will be used to monitor ECA’s youth and leadership programs. The proposed questions have been designed to appear across these collections as appropriate, and therefore it is imperative that these questions remain unchanged so as to continue our vital performance measurement work.
