  Common Measures
  ETA is committed to performance. One way of evaluating and improving performance is to have common performance measures for programs with similar goals. ETA and VETS have worked to define common measures, and as of July 1, 2005, these measures were implemented for the WIA title IB and Wagner-Peyser employment services and VETS programs. The Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) programs implemented the common measures on October 1, 2005.

This change TEGL only addresses specific reporting changes for the Youth literacy/numeracy measure.

   Revised Reporting and Recordkeeping Instructions   
  The collection of information on common performance measures is accomplished through revised reporting requirements for each program implementing the measures.  
   Final Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements  

The Employment and Training Administration has received FINAL clearance of revisions to the reporting and recordkeeping requirements: the Workforce Investment Act Information Management System, the Trade Act Participant Reporting System, and the Labor Exchange Reporting System for the Wagner-Peyser Act and the Veterans Employment and Training Service.These reporting systems have been modified to include data elements necessary to assess state progress against a set of common performance measures. Final clearance of the revised reporting requirements enables states to begin reporting outcomes for the common measures at the beginning of Program Year 2005 (WIA, Wagner-Peyser and VETS) and at the beginning of Fiscal Year 2006 (TAA).
