Data On Selected Students In Adult Basic Education Programs, 1971-72. Interim Report.
Kent, William P.
As first step in evaluation of basic education programs funded through Adult Education Act of 1966, analyses of interviews with students in first few months of 1972 are reported. 90 interviewing sites, located in 15 states representing all U.S. geographic areas were used. Program, class, and student test data are not reflected in this report. Students who were institutionalized, migrants, or over 44 years old were excluded. Results show motivation is primarily educational rather than job-related. Main interests are reading, numbers, with small interest in writing as separate learning subject. (NF)
