What are the CCMEP primary performance measures?

CCMEP accountability will be tied to outcome measures tracked at the Lead Agency (county) level.  

The seven primary performance measures are listed below:  

1) Education, Training or Unsubsidized Employment at exit

2) Education, training or unsubsidized employment 2nd quarter after exit  

3) Education, training or unsubsidized employment 4th quarter after exit  

4) Median Earnings 2nd quarter after exit

5) Credential attainment rate   

6) Measureable skill gains rate

7) Effectiveness in serving employers (i.e., job retention)
