CGS conducted an evaluation of Colorado’s workforce development programs for the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment. The sequential mixed methods model evaluated program performance, measured equitable outcomes for WIOA Title I participants, and identified best practices for continuous program improvement. This approach allows for the identification of patterns of potentially inequitable outcomes based on a quantitative analysis of the vast dataset of participant characteristics, services, and outcomes. This quantitative analysis is followed by interviews with frontline staff to better understand the patterns and identify potential promising practices that might be used to improve outcomes for participants.
