Abstract: Ray Marshall Center researchers provided an analysis of proposed performance measures for the U.S. Department of Laborâ€™s Integrated Performance Information (IPI) Project. Researchers used feedback surveys from state participants to summarize advantages, disadvantages and brief discussions on 30 proposed measures of the workforce investment programs and the One-Stop Career Center. Based on participants' responses, RMC researchers identified seven measures as the top candidates for adoption as part of the IPI Project: outcomes for employers and the economy, labor market outcomes for program participants, social welfare outcomes, return on investment, customer satisfaction, skill gains and others. The final measures selected by the participants will be discussed in a forthcoming paper, "Integrated Performance Information for Workforce Development System Planning, Oversight, and Management," authored by Bryan Wilson of the Washington State Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board.
