Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 235 / Friday, December 6, 2013 / Notices We are particularly interested in experiments that are designed to improve student persistence and academic success, result in shorter time to degree, including by allowing students to advance through educational courses and programs at their own pace by demonstrating academic achievement, and reduce reliance on student loans. Subject to the statutory restrictions and limitations of the Secretary’s experimental site authority noted above, examples of areas that could be considered for experiments include: D Allowing flexibility in how institutions provide Federal student aid to students enrolled in competencybased education programs where progress is measured on the basis of how much has been learned, rather than measures of time; D Allowing high school students to receive Federal student aid for enrollment in postsecondary coursework without a reduction in the amount of State and local support provided for such enrollment; D Allowing Federal student aid to be used to pay for assessments of prior learning and other processes to evaluate students’ knowledge. We will require institutions that participate in the experiments to provide data on the outcomes of the proposed alternatives. Further, experiments must not only measure the results of the alternative approach but also provide reasonable assessments of what would have happened under the existing requirements. Submissions need not be longer than two or three pages and should address the following: D The specific statutory or regulatory requirement(s) relating to the Title IV, HEA programs that would be waived or modified to test the alternative approach. D A description of the recommended alternative approach, and how the proposed alternative approach avoids or minimizes challenges imposed by the existing requirements. D A description of how the experiment could be evaluated, including identifying outcome measures and ways to collect comparative data with respect to the current statutory or regulatory requirements that will be waived as a part of the experiment. It is not necessary to submit fully developed experimental or evaluation plans. Based on the submissions and our own input, and in collaboration with the submitting institution or other parties, we will develop the final experimental designs and evaluation VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:28 Dec 05, 2013 Jkt 232001 plans for each experiment. We may also develop experiments in addition to those proposed in response to this request.
