Data Tools for Monitoring and Program Improvement: 

KYAE is in regular contact with local providers through designated regional staff: e-mail updates; telephone calls; regional meetings; hard copy mailings; electronic newsletter; on-site visits; updates to KAERS system documentation; state Program Manual quarterly updates; and posting on the Kentucky Adult Education (KYAE) Web sites (including Blackboard organization sites, the KYAE Professional Learning site, and public facing sites).

KYAE’s Kentucky Adult Education Reporting System (KAERS) is a web-based system that provides a variety of reports that local providers may generate at any time from "live" data, as well as ability to print trend data reports, charts and graphs. Most reports contain optional selection criteria to customize the report for individual program needs, such as by instructor or by student goal(s). This tool includes a dashboard to monitor key performance indicators. KAERS reports are utilized for monthly performance monitoring and help to guide KYAE personnel in providing technical assistance as needed across the state’s provider network.
