Statistical Adjustment Model Methodology Webinar, December 1 and December 2, 2015. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) emphasizes the importance of achieving outcomes - helping individuals find jobs, and obtaining the credentials and skills necessary to be successful in those jobs. As part of the performance accountability requirements, WIOA requires the use of a statistical adjustment model for setting targets for the core performance indicators. The Departments of Labor and Education have collaborated to develop a Statistical Adjustment Model per Sec.116 (b)(3)(A)(viii) of WIOA. Through your participation in this webinar, you will learn about the methodology for the statistical model, how the model will be used, and how it will be applied to targets to account for changes in economic conditions and participant demographics throughout the workforce and education systems.
