Tennessee Adult Basic Education Evaluation 1969.
Warf, J. Howard; Kerr, Charles F.
This publication is the second step in the on-going, continual monitoring and evaluation survey study of Tennessee's Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs; the first was the publication of "Data Tables for the 1969 Evaluation Survey of Tennessee Adult Basic Education programs." The document is divided into six chapters. The first presents a brief historical and legal description of ABE in the United States and in Tennessee and Tennessee's adult population characteristics. The second covers survey procedures and the various means of obtaining data--the use of the Base-Line Data File, the ABE teacher files, and the ABE student files, and others. The third and fourth chapters discuss student and teacher characteristics: student enrollment, participation, attraction to the ABE program, and the holding of students; and teacher training, preparedness, and capability. Chapter five outlines the instructional process--cooperative programs, media and materials, and teaching methodology. The last chapter discusses teacher recruitment, and provides a number of recommendations. (PT)
