LACES Student Data Management System Information
Massachusetts adopted the online LACES (Literacy, Adult and Community Education System), developed by LiteracyPro Systems, to collect and report performance data from adult education providers. The application was designed specifically to report to the National Reporting System for Adult Education (NRS), as required by all states receiving WIOA Title II funding. LACES is currently utilized by approximately one-third of the states to report to NRS. In addition to meeting the requirements for federal reporting, LACES offers adult education providers a tool to manage student demographic, assessment, and progress data.
After migrating nearly ten years of legacy data and customizing the application to meet Massachusetts specific requirements (e.g., MAPT integration, professional development), LACES went live in October 2019.
