AbstractThere is growing interest in providing students and others with information about the performance of postsecondary education and training programs. Currently, if one wants to know how many students get jobs and what those jobs pay, one cannot find comparable information for programs across the nation. Consumer reports, which display information about programs and their outcomes -- such as the percentage of students who complete their programs and find jobs, and average earnings of graduates -- can help students, policymakers, and others make more informed decisions. To their credit, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) through its College Scorecard and the sponsors of the College Transparency Act (CTA) now being considered by Congress, are attempting to address this information gap by providing online consumer reports. The President recently issued an executive order that the College Scorecard should report outcomes at the program-level. As these initiatives continue and evolve, it is important to align consumer reports with the characteristics and goals of today's students and postsecondary programs. For consumer reports to meet the needs of today's students, many of whom enroll in subbaccalaureate occupational programs, it's critical that the reports show labor market outcomes shortly after students graduate. If enacted by Congress, CTA could address these issues. In the meantime, to ensure that students and policymakers have comparable information about programs' immediate outcomes, the College Scorecard consumer pages should include a measure of earnings shortly after graduation. Three recommendations are made that would provide consumers and others information on postsecondary programs' immediate labor market outcomes, and level the playing field of consumer reports. Down sides of current consumer reports, and improving consumer reports are also discussed. (ERIC).
