Effective date: August 7, 2017 - February 25, 2019
Definition: The percentage of participants who obtain a recognized postsecondary credential during participation or within one year after exit from the program. Participants who receive a secondary school diploma or equivalent are successful if the participant was also employed or entered postsecondary education within a year of exit. See the Credential Policy section of this chapter for more information about what is a WIOA Performance Accountability System credential.
Participants Included in the Denominator:
Participants in any Title I program are included in the Credential Attainment Rate if the participant received training from any other WIOA core or partner program. For the Adult and Dislocated Worker Programs, training from other fund sources (including non-WIOA core or partner programs) must be reported in ASSET if there is evidence the Title I program supported, through financial, guidance or other means the participant's completion of that training. I.E. the participant's training was paid through a PELL Grant but career planning services were provided by the WIOA Program. The WIOA Youth program requires all training/education must be entered into ASSET regardless of fund source.
Participants with the following "Other Reasons for Exit" (Exclusions*) are not included in this indicator:
