The Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center (WINTAC), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Education's Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), recently published an Effectiveness in Serving Employers for WIOA Title IV Employer Services Crosswalk.

RSA and its Federal partners agree that the crosswalk may be a useful technical assistance resource as vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies collaborate with their State partners, across all titles of WIOA, to ensure each core program’s efforts to engage with businesses and employers are collected and reported as Federal partners pilot this WIOA performance indicator.

Measurable Skill Gains and Credential Attainment

  • The Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center (WINTAC), one of the RSA-funded technical assistance centers, partnered with RSA to develop guides for State VR agencies related to two of the WIOA performance accountability indicators: Measurable Skills Gains (MSG) and Credential AttainmentThese WINTAC guides are intended to assist State VR agencies with understanding the requirements of recognized education and training programs related to the indicators and developing policies and procedures using the joint performance accountability guidance
  • Beginning with Program Year (PY) 2017 and continuing in PY 2018, State VR agencies have collected and reported information to RSA related to VR program participants who achieved a MSG. In PY 2018, State VR agencies are collecting and reporting information to RSA related to participants who obtained a recognized postsecondary credential or secondary school diploma, or its recognized equivalent, during their participation in the VR program or within one year after they exit from the VR program.
