Program Years 17 and 18 were baseline years for Performance Accountability under section 116 of WIOA. At this point, ADRS has two full years of data available for the Measurable Skill Gains indicator only. In program year 2017, the first year of data collection for this measure, 17% of ADRS participants enrolled in training leading to a postsecondary credential were recorded as having achieved a measurable skill gain. In program year 2018, this indicator improved to 37%.
At the time of this writing, one completed year of data is available regarding the agency’s performance on indicator 1) 2nd Quarter After Exit Employment Rate and indicator 3) Median Earnings 2nd Quarter After Exit. Data obtained from the ETA-9169: Annual Performance Report for Alabama 2018 indicate a second quarter employment rate of 62.8%. For the same reporting period, ADRS attained Median Earnings 2nd Quarter After Exit of $3,568.
Regarding indicator 6) Effectiveness in Serving Employers, ADRS submits agency data to the Alabama Department of Commerce. The Commerce Department then aggregates ADRS data with that of other workforce partners to obtain statewide performance for this indicator. Baseline performance data is not yet unavailable.
