Teacher-Student Relationships: A Report of Adult Basic Education Research Conducted at the Florida State University.
Jahns, Irwin R.
Study of research on adult basic education (ABE) conducted at Florida State University reveals an array of concerns--psychological, sociological, institutional, procedural , administrative, developmental, organizational, curricular, etc. Research has been largely a student oriented phenomenon resulting in theses; this concern for ABE is a fairly recent phenomenon. Studies have been primarily 1) descriptive in nature; 2) oriented toward the outcomes of ABE instruction; and 3) concerned with some aspect of the educational process. Three descriptive studies were concerned with an urban student population involved in ABE and with two farm workers programs. Thirteen studies reported on some educational consequence accruing from the ABE programs; six reported grade level gain as measured by standardized tests and five reported on dropout rates and retention. Six process studies have been completed; seven are in various stages of completion. The completed studies explored a variety of areas--teacher behavior, teacher attributes, instructional materials and techniques, structural attributes of the instructional setting, and basic learning processes of adults.
