An Evaluation of Adult Basic Education Programs in Massachusetts
Massachusetts Univ., Amherst. School of Education.
A questionnaire and on the site survey was made of the state funded adult basic education (ABE) programs in Massachusetts to determine whether they were meeting the needs of the eligible population. Data were gathered from a sample of ABE administrators, teachers, counselors, and students and statistically analyzed. In addition an ABE dissemination seminar was held in Boston which dealt with the problem areas of funding, recruiting, curriculum, and communications. Correlations between the attitudes of the parts of the population samples were examined through multivariate analysis. Particular attention was given to teacher attitudes toward various possible ABE teaching roles in relation to the role of the other professionals involved. A series of recommendations based on the findings were made. Appendices included material relating to the dissemination seminar and the questionnaires used in the study. (DM)
