Indiana Management Performance Hub (formerly Indiana Network of Knowledge)

Collaboration Facilitator

Jim Lindsay

Collaboration Objective

REL Midwest partners with the Indiana Management Performance Hub to leverage Indiana’s statewide longitudinal data system, known as the Education and Workforce Development data system or EWD. The EWD is a collaborative initiative between the Indiana Department of Education, Commission for Higher Education, Department of Workforce Development, and Family and Social Services Administration. Education and workforce data elements are linked across the partner agencies at the record level, joining key education and workforce descriptors for exploration.

The goal of this collaboration is to explore key research questions to address specific policy initiatives. This enhanced understanding enables decisionmakers to make better informed choices to positively affect students, teachers, workers, and employers.

Students Who Take Career and Technical Education Courses in Indiana And Minnesota: Who Are They and What Becomes of Them?

Many states face the challenge of helping students gain the skills necessary to succeed in college and the workplace. One way states are addressing this challenge is by developing career pathways and career and technical education opportunities aligned with those pathways. Stakeholders in Indiana and Minnesota want to know whether certain types of students or schools have higher enrollment and completion rates for career and technical education. They also want to know if participation in career and technical education courses affects high school graduates’ college and workforce outcomes. REL Midwest is assisting these stakeholder groups by examining high school graduates’ course-taking patterns, their enrollment in and completion of college, and their employment and earnings history.
