Welcome to the New NRS Support Project: Enhancing and Strengthening Accountability in Adult Education
AIR has received a contract to lead the 2010–2015 NRS technical assistance project, Enhancing and Strengthening Accountability in Adult Education. We look forward to supporting states in policy and practice related to the national accountability system as well as integrating some novel approaches to enhance the effectiveness of our technical assistance.
AIR will continue to provide technical assistance and training to States with the goal of helping states collect high-quality data, accurately report data, and use data for program improvement. The following activities support these objectives:
Distance Education Courses: We will continue to offer the successful NRS Basics course. In addition, we will build new online courses on developing score cards and delivering distance education for adults, and we will enhance our current self-paced online courses available through NRSWeb.
The previous NRS project, Promoting Program Accountability in Adult Education, provided technical assistance and training, data analysis and reports, and the maintenance of the NRSWeb site. Specific materials and information are highlighted below.
The three regional training activities provided states with an understanding of how to develop and use data reports for program improvement and provided hands-on data reporting tools states could adapt to meet their needs. Click on the links below to view more about each training:
Webinars, or online seminars, were introduced to the NRS project and proved to be an inexpensive and easy way to reach out to adult education staff to enhance training sessions, increase awareness of new policies, and share practices between states. Click below to learn more about our webinars.
