The Formulation, Implementation and Evaluation of Adult Education Institutes in Tennessee, 1971.
Dutton, Bonnie; Easter, Luke
As a result of suggestions made in approximately 10 regional inservice workshops conducted in the State of Tennessee for Adult Basic Education (ABE) personnel, three institutes were conducted to instruct participants in guidance and counseling, instructional materials, and reading. Each institute was designed as a Teacher Training Institute, and each was evaluated using a standard evaluation form to measure its overall effectiveness. Two instruments were used to collect data: a questionnaire designed to obtain demographic data and participant reaction; and an evaluation scale developed by Russell Kropp and Coolie Verner. The instruments were administered the last day of each of the three two-week institutes. Only arithmetical means and percentages were employed to analyze the data. The evaluation results show that the three ABE institutes were extremely successful. Participants felt that additional institutes should be held to cover subjects of guidance and counseling (including recruitment and retention), reading, materials, curriculum development, adult learning centers (including programmed instruction), and adult psychology. An appendix presents samples of the evaluation forms. (DB)
