AEP Questions and Answers
This is a collection of questions that are most frequently asked of the AEP Office. They are organized by topic area and will be updated as needed.
The Launchboard Adult Education Data Tab is populated based on data reported through TOPSPro Enterprise (TE) and the community college MIS system. If you are collecting all data elements as specified in the AEP data and accountability guidance, there is no additional data collection or data input process for that data to be loaded into the LaunchBoard.
The AEP office will use the Launchboard for matching of K12 AE, Community College, EDD Wage File, and high school equivalency data sets. This data will be available to consortia via the Adult Education Data Tab which can be viewed by consortium or by consortium member, including disaggregation of all the AE outcomes and population/demographic elements. While consortia may do their own local data matching for local evaluation purposes, the AEP office is not involved in that process.
The primary keys for the fuzzy match are name (first name, last name), DOB, and Gender.
