    Sec. 38. Monetary award 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 award program recipient is enrolled. The Illinois Community College Board and the Illinois Board of Higher Education are authorized and directed to share data with the Commission as needed to allow completion of the assessment. 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.
