The purpose of the Iowa TOPSpro Data Dictionary is to provide a statewide-standardized set of instructions and definitions for coding Tracking Of Programs And Students (TOPSpro) forms and effectively utilizing the TOPSpro software. This document is designed to serve as a companion document to the TOPS Technical Manual produced by the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS). The data dictionary integrates information from various data systems to provide uniform data sets and definitions that meet local, state and federal reporting mandates. The sources for the data dictionary are: (1) the National Reporting System (NRS) Guidelines, (2) standard practices utilized in Iowa’s adult literacy program, (3) selected definitions from the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, (4) input from the state level Management Information System (MIS) personnel, and (5) selected definitions from other Iowa state agencies.
