OVAE requires states to complete a Data Quality Checklist each year that describes the state’s approach to ensuring data quality, the methods used to collect follow-up measures and the assessments the state uses for NRS reporting.

The first table below shows the methods states use to collect the NRS follow-up measures of entered and retained employment, entry into postsecondary education or training and attainment of a secondary credential. The second table shows the standardized assessments states use for NRS reporting for both ABE and ESL students.
