This session provides state Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment (RESEA) program managers an opportunity to ask questions about the new RESEA evidence-based requirements, standards, and getting started.



Guidance published in the Unemployment Insurance Program Letter (UIPL) No. 1-20 and Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) No. 6-19 describe the expectations for the implementation of the RESEA program's evaluation and evidence requirements.  As follow-up to the webinar held on November 21, 2019, this "office hours" session allows states to ask questions about the new RESEA evidence-based requirements and standards for evaluations and RESEA intervention causal evidence ratings and discuss technical issues, such as sample size considerations.  The presenters will also speak to specific considerations for small states and share information about available resources to help all states get started understanding and using existing evidence and initiating rigorous, high-quality evaluations.
