Performance Indicators & Goals
SHARE

Overview

The Department of Labor establishes policy on the performance and assessment of Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act's (WIOAs) six Primary Indicators of Performance for Title I and Title III programs. Title I accounts for the Adult, Dislocated Worker and Youth programs and Title III accounts for the Wagner-Peyser Act program. 

Performance goals are established procedurally at the State and Local levels.

Assessment scores measure performance outcomes at the State and Local levels. 

Extended policy details of performance indicators, goals and assessment are outlined in Technical Advisory #18-06.2.

Performance Indicators

States and Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDBs) are held to six (6) Primary Indicators of Performance established by WIOA for the Title I – Adult, DW and Youth, and Title III Wagner-Peyser programs. Note that the indicators are not applied uniformly across each program; some indicators are not applicable to specific programs, and others have different definitions for certain programs.

Performance Goals & Assessment

Performance Goals

Performance goals will be established at both the State and Local level through a negotiation process. WIOA identifies three types of performance goals:

 

Proposed Goals: Determined prior to the negotiation process and act as a starting point for the negotiations.

Negotiated Goals: Agreed upon by the parties involved in the negotiation process. Both types of goals will be listed in the table below once they are available.

Adjusted Goals: Calculated after the end of the Program Year by recalculating the negotiated goals using the Statistical Adjustment Model to account for circumstances that take place during the program year that could not be anticipated during the negotiation process.

 

Assessment of Performance

WIOA establishes three scores for the assessment of performance:

 

1. Individual Indicator Score
The actual outcomes for each of the primary indicators of performance are compared to the Adjusted goals within each program.

2. Program Score*
The actual outcomes of a core program across all indicators are compared to the Adjusted goals for that program. The percentages are then averaged, resulting in the overall State program score for each core program.

3. State Indicator Score*
The individual indicator score for each of the primary indicators of performance across all programs.

*Statewide assessment only

WIOA Quarterly Performance Reports

Quarterly Program Year performance reports are listed below. This section will be continually updated as performance data becomes available. Note that these quarterly reports are cumulative, where each successive quarterly report will contain new data for the latest quarter in addition to including data from previous quarters in the Program Year. For example, a quarter 3 report contains the new quarter 3 data, along with data from quarter 2 and data from quarter 1.
