Article4New Submission Requirements for Quarterly and Annual AEBG Performance Reports
New update to 

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 the following:
  • 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 measurable 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.
