Student History: add NRS Primary Goals

This article explains how to add NRS Primary Goals to a student record.

There are four NRS Primary Goals:

  1. GED 2014 Passed - MDE Match
  2. Local Credit Based Diploma
  3. State Competency Based diploma
  4. Post-secondary Training

GED 2014 Passed - MDE Match

Students with this history item are the result of automated GED data matching. (Students with a Personal Goal of "obtain GED" are not part of this count.) Data entry staff cannot add this history item to a Students>History screen.

If student names are missing from the report, contact us at support@mnabe.org.

Local Credit-Based and State Competency-Based Diplomas

On the Students>History screen, create an NRS Primary Goal>diploma row as a MET history item.

  • The MET history item must have a row of its own. Do not combine SET and MET diploma goals in a single line.
  • History item: choose the appropriate diploma type.
    • Local credit-based diploma: ABE students finished credits they were missing from their high school education. They receive a diploma from a local school district.
    • State competency-based diploma: Students worked with a MN ABE program to prove specific competencies and skills. They receive a diploma awarded by MDE.
  • Effective Date: use the date the student earned the diploma.
  • Status: select MET.

Post-secondary Training

This is not a high stakes category. We are required to track people in this NRS category. However, there is little federal guidance on this term or how it differs from post-secondary education.

Our thinking: Post-secondary training leads to a vocational certificate.
Post-secondary education (which is data matched) leads to a degree.

On the Students>History screen, create an NRS Primary Goal>Post-secondary Training as a MET history item.

  • The MET history item must have a row of its own. Do not combine SET and MET diploma goals in a single line.
  • Effective Date: use the date the student enrolled in a post-secondary training program.
  • Status: select MET.
