Tracking Outcomes of Voluntary Military Education Programs Data
/reports/2021/04/tracking-outcomes-of-voluntary-military-education-programs-data
In this report, we used individual-level data provided by each of the Services and Force Education and Training to calculate the Tuition Assistance (TA) and My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) educational outcome statistics of Servicemembers and their spouses, as requested in the 2014 DOD Appropriations Bill. These tabulations compare not only outcomes by Service but also by institutional sector (private for-profit, private not-for-profit, and public). By making these Service- and sector-level comparisons, we highlight differences in TA and MyCAA enrollment, cost, number of courses taken, credits received, courses completed, and degrees received. These summarized outcome measures will provide policy-makers with a better understanding of the differences that exist across Services and education sectors, allowing them to evaluate how the Services are using these Voluntary Education benefits.
