OCTAE Program Guidance and Policy Memoranda
OCTAE issued several policy memoranda and Federal Register notices to eligible states concerning implementation of WIOA, AEFLA, and other program administration issues.
Assessment Regulations issued on January 14, 2008, and as amended on August 19, 2016, specify requirements for statewide assessment policies for the NRS that must contain certain elements and be submitted to and approved by OCTAE each year. The regulations also describe how tests must be administered locally in order to accurately measure education gains. A current list of tests determined to be suitable for use in the NRS for adult education can be found on the Federal Register.
