An Appraisal of Practices of Adult Evening Programs of Community Colleges in Washington State.
This study assessed the practices of the adult evening programs of community colleges in Washington State. From a survey of the literature, a list was made of practices recommended by writers in the field of adult education and was used in developing an appraisal instrument, which was then refined by a trial group of respondents. The refined instrument was sent to a representative jury of state adult education directors, community college adult education administrators, and college instructors of adult education courses, who were asked to indicate the importance of each statement on a five-point rating scale ranging from desirable to essential. Appraisal instruments were also sent to the adult education program directors at all the community colleges in the state to determine whether the practices included in the questionnaire were being followed. Conclusions indicate a wide range of administrative practices among the adult program directors, and a lack of agreement between those who teach about community college adult education and those who administer college adult programs.
