Comment Request: Measures and Methods for the National Reporting System for Adult Education 2020

OCTAE proposed changes to the NRS reporting system on July 23, 2020 for adult education that will impact reporting on the WIOA measurable skills gains indicator (MSG) and other areas.  The proposed changes open up exciting and much anticipated reporting options for integrated education and training (IET) programs and other changes.

In the summer of 2020, stakeholder, including teachers, local adult education providers, state agencies, businesses, and research organizations contributed comments on the proposed NRS reporting modifications. On November 24th, an additional opportunity to provide comment related to OCTAE responses to stakeholder feedback.  This opportunity closed December 21, 2020.
