A One-Year Follow-Up Study of the Forty-One Graduates Class of 1971 of the Jackson County Adult Evening High School Completion Program.
Gran, James R.
A series of follow-up studies were conducted to evaluate the Jackson County Adult Evening School Program in terms of educational, social or personal, and/or financial benefits as measured by the graduates themselves. The studies supplement other teacher, student evaluations and pre-post test results. The results of all follow-up studies have shown a remarkable degree of consistency in responses both in percentage comparisons as well as content and direction. Conclusions include: (1) Age and sex need not be deterrent factors to adults desiring to complete their high school education; (2) The members of this class have many productive years ahead of them in which to repay the cost of their education; (3) The vast majority of these graduates remain within the same general area; (4) A significant number of job changes or promotions occur to those in the labor market within one year of graduation; and (5) All of the respondents of this class rated the quality of instruction as being either excellent, very good, or good.
