Adult Basic Education as a Program for Social Change. Interim Report.
McGonnell, Peter C.
Adults from Kings County, Prince Edward Island, participated in a Basic Training for Skill Development Program, designed to improve their reading and computational skills. Test scores, obtained before and after instruction, were analyzed to evaluate the effect of the program on skill levels. Results showed that group gains in terms of grade level were relatively small, considering the duration of the program. Suggestions are made on the direction planning should take if the program is to be effective. (Author)
