The Ohio Education Research Center (OERC) has been working in collaboration with the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation (OWT) to evaluate Ohio’s largest workforce development programs: (1) Workforce Investment Act (WIA); (2) Perkins-funded Ohio Technical Centers (OTC); (3) Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE), and (4) State-funded financial aid and scholarships for college education.   The result of the evaluations will be publicly available online through the Workforce Success Measures (WSM) Dashboard, which will enable policy makers and program administrators to continually monitor progress across multiple programs, creating better transparency and greater accountability. The WSM Dashboard will be publicly released in early December 2014.   On November 20th Dr. Josh Hawley will give a presentation and demonstration that will preview the WSM Dashboard with Stark County workforce program administrators.
For additional information and a brief video about the project please visit the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation website.
