Data collection for TRIO SSS takes place throughout the academic year, September 1, 2019 - August 31, 2019. Each staff member plays a pertinent role in retrieving information that helps to maintain and evaluate the progress of program participants. The information is compiled from the students demographic information, academic profiles/needs, and transcripts which helps to track the academic progress of students on the Annual Performance Report.

We have to assess how many students continue, discontinue, transfer, and graduate. The information will be evaluated periodically throughout the academic year and analyzed by staff for accuracy. The reports will be submitted to the US Department of Education in November 2020 to be analyzed. Results of the data will be interpreted in a report received from the US Dept. of Education to determine the performance of the program based on their standards and expected outcomes for continued funding.
