        Title II of the Higher Educational Act requires "[e]ach Institution of higher education that conducts a
        teacher preparation program that enrolls students receiving Federal assistance under this Act...shall report
        to the State and to the general public" certain information about the performance of its teacher preparation
        programs (Section 207[f][1]). Title II also requires that this information shall be reported through such
        "publications as school catalogues and promotional materials sent to potential applicants, secondary school
        guidance counselors, and prospective employers of the institution's program candidates" (Section
        207[f][2]).

        In accordance with Title II requirements, the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) provides the
        public with the following information on its 2007-2008 teacher preparation programs.

        (A) PASS RATE
               (i)   For the most recent year for which the information is available, the pass rate of the
                     institution's graduates on the teacher certification or licensure assessments of the State in
                     which the institution is located, but only for those students who took those assessments
                     within 3 years of completing the program.
               (ii)  A comparison of the program's pass rate with the average pass rate for programs in the
                     State.
               (iii) In the case of teacher preparation programs with fewer than 10 graduates taking any
                     single initial teacher certification or licensure assessment during an academic year, the
                     institution shall collect and publish information with respect to an average pass rate on
                     State certification or licensure assessments taken over a 3-year period.
