Using Wage Records to Track Student Outcomes

The Workforce Data Quality Campaign, of which ACTE is a partner, recently hosted a webinar on using the Wage Record Interchange System (WRIS) 2 to track education and employment outcomes.

WRIS2 is a voluntary Department of Labor system (35 states currently participate) that enables states to exchange wage records in order to track an increasingly mobile workforce. Perkins is one of the programs eligible to receive aggregated reports from WRIS2.

The webinar describes WRIS2 and explores how two states, Oregon and Texas, are using WRIS2 in support of education and workforce programs. It is a companion to a recent short WDQC publication, Employing WRIS2: Sharing Wage Records Across States to Track Program Outcomes.
