MABLE Users Manual
Click here http://www.nwlincs.org/mtlincs/opi/pp/MABLEUserManualJuly2012.pdf to access MABLE Users Manual.
As promised, attached is the new Mable User’s Manual. We have made some changes to MABLE per the new NRS Guidelines that took effect on July 1, 2012. The Personnel section (pages 4-8) is new. Pages 14-15 in the student section cover the new fields.And, we also updated the information on the Goals page 18. The rest of the document is basically the same as before.
We hope you will find this document helpful and that it walks you through the new fields that have been added. The document will be posted in MABLE under the Help Menu, Useful Forms and General Information early next week.
NRS Changes/MABLE Resources

Thanks to everyone who joined in the meeting this morning, and as promised we have material for you. The Adobe Connect recorded session and Q & A will be forthcoming.
Attached are the PowerPoint, new student Intake Form, and the definitions of the optional student measures you can now enter into MABLE. I am sorry we haven't been collecting all of these measures through the years, as it is compelling information when describing our student population to stakeholders. The good news is we will now have this to report.
Please contact us if you would like an additional MABLE session in the coming weeks, as we are eager to assist in the new reporting.

Employment Goals and Employment StatusClick here for explanation about Employment Goals/Employment Status.
Good Afternoon,Many of you were in attendance at the MABLE break-out session during the September Data Quality Conference. During the conference a question came up regarding employment status that is reported in MABLE. Our MABLE experts spent considerable time looking at the employment status question. I am happy to report there is no glitch in MABLE; your employment data match is working very well.Attached is an explanation entitled Employment Goals/Employment Status.I want to extend special thanks to the folks who spent considerable time addressing this issue: Norene Peterson, Char Hurd, Betty Boten, Erin Niedge, Renee Bentham, Linda Gardner, and Carol Flynn.If you have any questions, please contact me.Best,Margaret
MABLE Update on Student Goals from Year to Year
November 1, 2011: Displaying Student Goals on Student Pages
Mable will only display current year goals at the top of the Student pages. As always, a complete list of the student’s goals can be viewed in a grid at the bottom of the Student Summary page.
This is a fix that has just been completed in MABLE; we added this fix to the attached FAQ. Beginning this program year, we decided to track all changes to MABLE in an appendix at the end of the FAQ. You can always find the FAQ in LINCS, and it is also in MABLE.
Kudos to the field that brought this needed fix to our attention.
