The Bureau of Federal Educational Programs (BFEP) receives and analyzes reports created from survey data submissions. These reports are used for program evaluation, verification, dissemination, and the creation of files for internal and external stakeholders. For example, one approach to program improvement is using data to gain insight, identify areas for improvement, and set goals. Data answers questions about students receiving services, how they are receiving those services, and how many are received. What is learned may help identify improvement strategies that can be monitored for changes by continuous data review to learn about how the strategy is working.
