Stage I Final Report for the Study of Program Management Procedures in the Campus-Based and Basic Grant Programs. (Volume I).
Puma, Michael J.; And Others
The third phase of SISFAP (Study on the Impact of Student Financial Aid Programs), the primary purpose of this study is to evaluate federal and institutional management policies and practices for Basic Educational Opportunity Grant (BEOG) and campus-based programs as they impact on the extent to which the programs are meeting their legislative goals. Reported are some preliminary activities of the study of program management procedures, which consisted of the analysis of existing (i.e., secondary source) data and the development of a complete research design for Stage II data collection and analysis. Tasks involved included: searching all available literature to uncover prior research related to the study; documentation of potentially usable data files; development of plans for data analysis; design of a sampling plan and data collection procedures; development of survey instruments; and compilation of these components into a survey clearance package for submission to the Education Data Acquisition Committee of the U.S. Office of Education (USOE) and to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Chapters provide an introduction to the study, a summary of Stage I activities, and plans for Stage II activities. Appendices and illustrations provide material on institutional eligibility, program monitoring, sources of student information, institutional reporting, BEOG application processing and validation, student need analysis systems, USOE guidelines for student budgets, procedures for ensuring compliance with regulations, allocation of aid to institutions, and National Direct Student Loan Program defaults.
