An Evaluation of the McDowell County Community Action Agency. Adult Education Program.
Vargas, Ernest A.; Wotkiewicz, Helen
The first section of this report is a general model developed to guide efforts in this evaluation project on adult basic and high school equivalency education at eight centers (Berwind, Bradshaw, Appalachian, Iaeger, Rolfe, Thorpe, Warriormines, Vivian) in McDowell County, West Virginia. This model places enrollment, attendance, diplomas received, student characteristics, and other educational data in a framework of more general significance. The next section summarizes major points (including adult population statistics in areas served across all eight centers). The third section presents the failings of the program and some recommendations for future programs. (Author/LY)
