program accountability. The Illinois Student Assistance Commission is directed
to assess the educational persistence of monetary award program recipients. An
assessment under this Section shall include an analysis of such factors as
undergraduate educational goals, chosen field of study, retention rates, and
expected time to complete a degree. The assessment also shall include an
analysis of the academic success of monetary award program recipients through a
review of measures that are typically associated with academic success, such as
grade point average, satisfactory academic progress, and credit hours earned.
Each analysis should take into consideration student class level, dependency
types, and the type of higher education institution at which each monetary
program recipient is enrolled. The Commission shall report its findings to the
General Assembly and the Board of Higher Education by February 1, 1999 and at
least every 2 years thereafter.
