Two core outcomes showed an upward trend during the five-year period: keeping a job and earning a GED or secondary credential. Both of these outcomes increased from 2008-9 to 2009-10, and the credential outcome continued to rise through 2010-11. In the most recent year of data displayed, 63% of adult learners with a credentialing goal got the credential, and 50.8% of employed adult learners with the goal kept their jobs. During the same time period, the percentages of adult learners getting jobs and going to college declined.
