New Jersey Consumer Report Card
Calculation of performance information about publicly funded education and training provided by education and training providers in New Jersey.
Since 2000, the Heldrich Center has been working with the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJLWD) and the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) to provide performance information about publicly funded education and training provided by public and private education and training providers located in New Jersey. The Heldrich Center performs a calculation and analysis of training provider performance data in order to assess and prepare this information for display on the online New Jersey Consumer Report Card System (www.njtrainingsystems.org). The Heldrich Center uses state administrative data from NJLWD and NJDOE on program completers/exiters and matches them against New Jersey Unemployment Insurance wage information and Wage Record Interchange System information to calculate performance levels at three levels: the provider level, the cluster level, and the CIP code level. These performance measures include employment outcomes for all individuals with valid social security numbers received by the Heldrich Center from state data files, including exiters from county vocational schools and county colleges.
