Title II Performance and Accountability: Post-exit Primary Performance Indicators
Event Type: On Demand
Subject: WIOA
Additional Information

The impact of the College and Career Readiness program extends well beyond the classroom.  As students leave and continue their educational or employment journey, the skills they learned while in your program play a part in their success.  Reporting student accomplishments while a student is enrolled is done by measuring pre and post-test assessments, high school credits, graduates, and postsecondary enrollment.  It is equally important to track students after exit to determine 1) the effectiveness of the service provided and 2) assist with measuring student success.  Tracking post-exit measures as primary indicators of performance is a requirement under the Title II Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.  This training is for program coordinators, instructors and data administrators who need to know how post-exit indicators are reported and how student participation during enrollment affects these outcomes.

Instructor Credentialing

Research studies prove that the quality of instruction has the greatest impact on student performance.  As a result, federal and state agencies and other national organizations, require higher standards for instructors.  Since 2012, the CCR Professional Development Team has offered a process and credentialing system to train instructors in evidence-based teaching methodologies.  These include the learning philosophies and frameworks that are unique to adult education and literacy activities. 

The credentialing courses and credentialing process funded through the NC Community College System are accessible to all full or part-time basic skills instructors or community-based volunteers.  The CORE Credential, ASE Language Arts, and ASE Math courses are offered 100% online via the NCCC Virtual Learning Community.

The CORE, ASE Language Arts, and ASE Math courses are ten-week, online, asynchronous courses with scheduled assignments due every week.  Beginning with the program year 2021-2022 all prospective students of these credentialing courses are required to complete an application for a scholarship to participate in the course.

Scholarship applicants must commit to spending approximately three hours per week completing the required assignments by the weekly due date.  Applicants must also commit to completing the course by the course end date.

Once you have discussed your professional development goals with your program director, you may submit a scholarship application.  

Below are the links to scholarship applications for the first three courses.  Scholarship links for the spring 2022 courses will be open to receive applications six weeks prior to the start of each course.
