Postsecondary Education Outcome Measures: ED, DOD, and VA

Executive Order 13607: Establishing Principles of Excellence

The Secretaries of Defense, Veterans Affairs, and Education shall develop a comprehensive Strategy for developing service member and Veteran student outcome measures that are comparable, to the maximum extent practicable, across Federal military and Veterans educational benefit programs, including, but not limited to, the Post-9/11 GI Bill and the Tuition Assistance Program.

To the extent practicable, the student outcome measures should rely on existing administrative data to minimize the reporting burden on institutions participating in these benefit programs. The student outcome measures should permit comparisons across Federal educational programs and across institutions and types of institutions.

The Secretary of Education, in consultation with the Secretaries of Defense and Veterans Affairs, shall also collect from educational institutions, as part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System and other data collection systems, information on the amount of funding received pursuant to the Post-9/11 GI Bill and the Tuition Assistance Program. The Secretary of Education shall make this information publicly available on the College Navigator Website.
