8 State Perkins Accountability Congress Proposed Accountability Reforms Common Definitions to Strengthen Data Systems and Close Equity Gaps for Participation: – Use uniform definitions for participation and performance indicators to create high-quality data systems that enable meaningful comparisons and identification of equity gaps Within-state Competitions to Distribute Funds to Consortia: Provide states increased autonomy to select and fund high-quality programs responsive to regional labor-market needs Incentives for High Performance: Incentivize and reward local recipients that exceed performance targets 8

9 State Perkins Accountability Congress Blueprint: Possible Negotiated Indicators Common performance indicators, intended to support meaningful crossstate data comparisons and identify equity gaps SHigh school graduation rate BRate of entrance into postsecondary education with and without remediation BRate of attainment of industryrecognized certifications or licensures PRate of attainment of postsecondary certificates and degrees BRate of employment and earnings S=secondary; B=both secondary &/or postsecondary; P=postsecondary 9

10 State Perkins Accountability Congress Blueprint: Non-negotiated Progress Indicators Common non-negotiated progress indicators to measure subpopulation enrollment in CTE, reported by gender, race/ethnicity, and special population status – the number of dual credits earned, – CTE credits meeting high school graduation requirements, and – workbased learning opportunities 10

25 State Perkins Accountability Congress State and Local Issues Participation vs. concentration Should the indicator definitions be associated with measuring consortium outcomes? Should outcomes be assessed at both secondary and postsecondary levels or only upon completion of a full POS? Should the indicators and measures reflect longitudinal aspects of students educational experiences? Data collection, validity, reliability and reporting Design Team expressed interest in TSA but agnostic on accountable measure Will states be accountable for only Perkins funded programs? Will states and districts be allowed to use surveys? 25
