Project CLASS.
McBain, Susan L.; And Others
Project CLASS (Competency-Based Live-Ability Skills) uses a series of 60 modules to teach life survival skills to adults with low-level reading ability--especially Adult Basic Education/English as a Second Language students. Two versions of the modules have been developed: one for use with teacher-directed instruction and another for independent study. Divided equally between Adult Performance Level (APL) level I (reading level grades 0-4) and level II (reading level grades 5-8), the modules cover basic survival competencies in these APL areas: consumer economics, government and law, health, community resources, occupational knowledge, and interpersonal relationships. (Module content and costs are also discussed.) A full-scale field test conducted at four sites found tremendously significant differences between the 728 treatment and 733 control students in percent of students mastering objectives. (YLB)
