Each State agency or local educational agency that conducts a program under subpart 1 or 2 of this part shall evaluate the program, disaggregating data on participation by gender, race, ethnicity, and age, not less than once every 3 years, to determine the program’s impact on the ability of participants—

(5) as appropriate, to participate in postsecondary education and job training programs.
(b) Exception
The disaggregation required under subsection (a) of this section shall not be required in a case in which the number of students in a category is insufficient to yield statistically reliable information or the results would reveal personally identifiable information about an individual student.
(c) Evaluation measures
In conducting each evaluation under subsection (a) of this section, a State agency or local educational agency shall use multiple and appropriate measures of student progress.
(d) Evaluation results
Each State agency and local educational agency shall—
