Adult Basic Education. State Plan for Fiscal Year 1979.
Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka.
This plan seeks generally to improve literacy skills and specifically to aid adults in progressing through three adult performance levels to obtain the general educational development (GED) diploma. The introduction discusses the general growth of adult basic education; a chart depicts that growth in Kansas. The document is then divided into five chapters. Chapter 1 details the evaluation procedures used for each of the postsecondary education section's fourteen objectives for 1978. Interagency cooperation, new program establishment, and instructional method improvement are a few of the concepts touched upon in the objectives. A training needs assessment report for Kansas adult basic education personnel is also included. Chapter 2 outlines ten objectives for the 1979 program. Objective 1, for example, makes adult basic education programming available to all adults regardless of race, color, or national origin. Stated for each objective are a selection background, steps to achievement, and evaluation procedure. Chapter 3, entitled "Needs Assessment," gives Kansas adults' educational attainment level. Chapter 4 discusses overall evaluation, which embraces the program's needs assessment, implementation, progress, and outcomes. In chapter 5, six tables on adult basic education program facts and figures are presented. Table 1, for example, depicts legal restrictions. The appendixes contain definitions, federal requirements for adult basic education plans, and the governor's comments. (CSS)
