Introduction

Here's an easy reference to WIA and Common Performance Measures definitions. We have organized the definitions in 4 parts: Definition, Logic, Timing and Documentation Issues. Measure definitions are provided for current measures.

Performance Matters utilizes the Department of Labor's Workforce Investment Act Annual Report: General Reporting Instructions and ETA Form 9091, Revision 2006 as guidance for measure calculation logic. (See Logic section of performance measure definitions for detailed measure logic as outlined by DOL)
