Article4New Submission Requirements for Quarterly and Annual AEBG Performance Reports
The AEBG Office has issued a letter detailing requirements for Quarterly and Annual AEBG Performance Reports.  This letter includes details and required actions relating to:
  • Management Information System Requirements;
  • Alignment of AEBG Measures; and
  • AEBG Performance Data and Accountability Funding
Consortia receiving AEBG funding from the CDE and the CCCCO for the 2016-17 program year must have a performance data collection system (MIS/Student Information Management System) by December 30, 2016 that can report all data into the CASAS TOPSPro® Enterprise system.  Consortia must track only students funded by AEBG for instructions and services. Consortia must use the National Reporting System (NRS) approved instruments for measureable skill gains in AEBG funded instruction (12 hours or more) in ABE, ASE & ESL.*

*NOTE: Any non-WIOA members would have to purchase TOPSPro® Enterprise in order to report their AEBG student data.  See AEBG student data collection page for link to CASAS pricing list (see link below).  WIOA members already have TOPSPro and would not need to purchase it again. More info on the 12/2 webinar.

CLICK HERE or see the link below for the AEBG Office letter which details required actions. This letter was sent out to regional consortia primary contacts last week. CLICK HERE to connect to the Student Data Collection page for more important information and links.

Article4National Skills Coalition State Workforce Education Alignment Program Update
The State Workforce and Education Alignment Project (SWEAP), an initiative of the National Skills Coalition, is demonstrating how state policy leaders can use system-wide information about workforce education and training programs to better align programs with each other and with employers' skill needs. The goal is to create better cross-program information that allows state policy leaders to see how these programs can work together in their state, and how individuals can advance through these programs over time in the pursuit of post-secondary credentials and higher-paying employment.

SWEAP is assisting California, Mississippi, Ohio, and Rhode Island develop three types of data tools: dashboards, pathway evaluators, and supply and demand reports. Dashboardsuse a small number of common metrics to report education and employment outcomes across workforce development programs. Pathway evaluators show how people use a range of education and training programs to earn credentials and move into jobs. Supply and demand reports display how the supply of newly credentialed workers compares to the number of workers that employers need.
