    Abstract: OVAE requests a revision to its data collection 
requirements for four measures, entered employment, retained 
employment, entry into postsecondary education and attainment of a 
secondary credential by changing the population to which these measures 
apply. Currently, states report on the relevant outcome for students 
who set goals related to the measure. Goal setting is being replaced 
with automatic cohort designation related to a student's employment 
status, having a secondary credential and taking GED tests. Approval is 
also sought for collecting new data on teacher experience and 
certification and student's years of schooling.
