Beginning 7/1/18, passing the GED or earning a high school diploma will appear on the Level Gains and Post-Test Rates report as a measurable skills gain (MSG).
MSG's will be counted as positive outcomes on NRS Table 4. They appear in a separate column from the count of students who have an educational functioning level (EFL) gain.
Passing the GED or diploma will also be counted on NRS Table 5 if the same student gets a job or enrolls in post-secondary after a certain period of time.
Here's how GED and diploma passers are included on the Federal NRS reports:
- Data matching will determine whether or not a GED has been earned.
- For the high school credential, SiD will count students who have an NRS Primary Goal of earning a diploma that was MET during the selected NRS year.
