  • III. Operational Planning Elements

    The Unified or Combined State Plan must include an Operational Planning Elements section that supports the State’s strategy and the system-wide vision described in Section II(c) above.  Unless otherwise noted, all Operational Planning Elements apply to Combined State Plan partner programs included in the plan as well as to core programs.  This section must include—

III. b. 4. A. Assessment of Core Programs

Describe how the core programs will be assessed each year based on State performance accountability measures described in section 116(b) of WIOA.  This State assessment must include the quality, effectiveness, and improvement of programs broken down by local area or provider.  Such state assessments should take into account local and regional planning goals.

Current Narrative:

The State will use the indicators of performance outlined in Section 116 of WIOA to measure and evaluate program effectiveness at both the local and state level. Please refer to Section (II)(b)(4) of this plan (Assessment), for an overview of how WIOA Section 116 performance data will generally be used to evaluate program and system effectiveness. This section deals more specifically with how programs will be assessed based on performance targets and projected levels of performance submitted with this plan.

Establishing Performance Levels - The agency administering each core program will be expected to negotiate performance targets with its federal office per applicable guidelines for each core program. The One-Stop Committee identified in Section (II)(c) has established a process to monitor  performance levels across the core programs. The WIOA Advisory Group will be responsible for coordinating with the appropriate federal office to negotiate and report statewide performance levels as required by WIOA and applicable regulations.

Local Provider Assessment - Each agency administering a core program will be responsible for establishing a system for collecting, reviewing, and evaluating performance from local providers’ data pursuant to the applicable WIOA Title and Regulations, and in alignment with the strategies and processes outlined in this Combined State Plan—including data alignment strategies outlined in Section (III)(b)(6). Each agency will also be responsible for: establishing or negotiating local performance levels or targets as appropriate; ensuring local compliance; and guiding local improvement efforts related to the evaluation of local data.

Core Program Assessment - Each agency administering a core program will be responsible for compiling statewide performance data for that program according to applicable WIOA Title and Regulations and will be responsible for submitting applicable program reports to the appropriate federal office. Each agency will also be expected to establish and implement statewide improvement plans for its applicable programs based on the evaluation of performance data.
