  1. FLAIR FY ’08 Update Sue Rasher OER Associates LLC

  2. Update Your Data for FY ‘08 • Exit non-returning families and participants • Review A-3 & delete non-relevant adult goals • Review C-1 & delete non-relevant child goals • Review C-2: Is child still age 3-5? • Review F-3 & delete non-relevant family goals

  3. Update Your Data for FY ‘08 • Is A-1 or A-2 Still Relevant for this Adult? Review: • A-1 TABE data • A-2 BEST, CELSA, BEST Plus data • FLAIR keeps latest FY ‘07 posttest score & converts it to the FY ’08 pretest score

  4. Form 3: Use New Income Ranges for Newly Enrolled Families

  5. A Few Reminders: School Age/Not School Age Status • School Age/Not School Age Adult Status • School Age • Not School Age • If you check either Adult Earned High School Diploma or Adult Earned GED, you must check whether the adult is school age or not school age.

  6. Form 3: School Age Status Field

  7. PPVT-III: We Need This Data! • Children who have been enrolled at least six months • Children who are entering Kindergarten next year (Fall 2008) • Assessingthe number of children who made a significant gain: standard score increase of 4 or more points between pre- and post-test

  8. Only Site Master Users Can: • Set Attendance Hour Defaults • Complete Form 20: Project Information • Due Date for Completion: October 22, 2007 • Give OER Confirmation That You Have Entered All of Your Midyear or End-of-Year Data • Complete Form 22: Attendance Option Selection

  9. #1 Request for New Feature If we exit an adult or family from FLAIR on or before July 29, 2007, can you stop FLAIR from counting them?

  10. Exiting Adults On or Before 7/29/07

  11. Before

  12. After

  13. #2 Request for New Feature • Last year, we decided that if an adult is classified as having an IEP or Special Needs, then the adult should not be counted in A-1 or A-2 Performance Indicator calculations. • Same as above for children for C-1, C-2, C-3. • But….

  14. IEP/Special Needs “Don’t Count” • Now it’s very difficult to add up the number enrolled. • If you projected 10 adults in A-1 and you enrolled 11 adults, but 2 are IEP/SN, FLAIR only shows 9 enrolled. • Solution “Coming Soon”

  15. #1 Request from ISBE Record adult goals for as many adults as possible. Enter into employment (paid part-time or full-time position) Retain employment for at least six (6) consecutive months Retain employment for at least twelve (12) consecutive months Enter a job retraining program Complete a job retraining program Advance career or employment possibilities Get a better/different job

  16. #1 Error Made This Year: Failure to Check: A-1 & A-2 Not Applicable

  17. How Many Evaluators Does it Take to Change a Light Bulb? • One to do a needs assessment • One to do a qualitative study to identify what bulb to change • One to propose further study next year • One to write performance indicators for success • So…how many evaluators does it take? • NONE! Evaluators don’t change light bulbs; that’s a program implementation problem!

  18. What Else is “Coming Soon”? • Some reordering of tables in Summary Report II • Addition of child ethnicity tables in Summary Report I • Some corrections of typographical errors, etc. Send in whatever you’ve noticed!

  19. Updated Guide to Calculations • See Guide to Calculating FLAIR FY ’08 Performance Indicators on FLAIR Webpage: http://www.thecenterweb.org/adult/flair_main.htm
