This section should explain/clarify what was reported under the Leveraged Resources tab; the detail goes here

The data reported should be “consistent” with what’s reported on the 9130 (financial)

Paragraph form okay but using a chart is recommended to ensure complete information

Capacity Building Tab*

Instructors (e.g., number who contributed to development of grant-funded curriculum)

Students (e.g., number who attended a course taught by an instructor who contributed to the development of the curriculum)

Other People (e.g., number attending a recruitment seminar)

“Students” and ”Other People” are not necessarily participants

13

*Participation should include verifiable measures of participation


Section d 1 f key issues and technical assistance needs l.jpg

Key Issues = TA Needs

For Key Issues – Summarize issues, challenges, resolution of previous issues (e.g., pertaining to recruitment, staff turnover) or say nothing to report

Issues – Info in other sections only

14


Section d 1 g best practices and lessons learned l.jpg

Section D.1.G.Best Practices and Lessons Learned

This section represents an opportunity to do two separate things

Describe promising practices, approaches and lessons learned, and

Include participant success stories (with express permission from individual)

Issues – Info not updated and “issues” located here versus previous section

15


Section d 1 h common measures l.jpg

Section D.1.H.Common Measures

There are only 3 possibilities:

Provide exiter information with four required data elements to ETA and ETA calculates common measures (using Common Measures “tab”)

Calculate adult common measures and provide info to ETA in this section (either based on wage records or supplemental data)

Combination

16


Section d 1 i additional information l.jpg

Section D.1.I.Additional Information

All the good stuff that doesn’t fit anywhere else… put here! (include info clarifying what’s reported elsewhere, other outcomes, other info to share (e.g., evaluations))

Issues –

Underutilized (e.g., could have used this section to report “no students began training because this quarter falls in the middle of the fall semester”)

Information in other sections should have gone here (e.g., “Two individuals did not disclose race so there is a discrepancy in Section B of the 9134”)

17


Section d 1 i additional information 2 l.jpg

Section D.1.I.Additional Information (2)

Fifth Round CBJTs have additional information to report here:

Type of degree, certificate, credential (for those receiving a degree)
