For each metric:
- A rate is calculated using the metric's numerator and denominator. See the Methodology page for details.
- The percentage of the target met is then calculated by dividing the rate by the metric's target and then capping it at 100 percent.
- The percentage of the target met (the result of #2 above) is then multiplied by the metric's weight to get the weighted performance.
- A+: ≥ 97
- A : 93 to < 97
- A-: 90 to < 93
- B+: 87 to < 90
- B : 83 to < 87

As data becomes available, on a rolling four-quarter basis, preliminary scores are calculated per metric and updated on this website on a quarterly basis. A summary of all scores is posted on the Performance page and individual scores are made available on each local workforce development board's performance page.
Once final data is available after the close of each program year and the final program-year performance report is submitted to the U.S. Department of Labor, an annual score is calculated for each local workforce development board. Following data validation of final scores, the CareerSource Florida Board of Directors assigns and makes public the letter grades annually by Oct. 15. The letter grades, scores and underlying data are then made available on this website.
