A Four-Year Follow-Up Study of the Fifty-Eight Graduates--Class of "70" of the Jackson County [Iowa] Adult Evening High School Completion Program.
Gran, James R.
This 4-year followup study of graduates of the Jackson County Adult Evening School Completion Program is the fourth 4-year study to be completed. The study attempted to measure the benefits received by the 1970 graduates in the educational, social, and financial areas. General information was obtained from a questionnaire that required information on the participants' age, sex, residence, marital and family status, job changes and promotions, kinds of additional training received, improved social and personal attitudes, and the program's effectiveness for each individual. Twenty-six tables show the relevant findings of the questionnaire, and conclusions related to questionnaire items are listed. Recommendations based on this and earlier studies of the adult graduates are proposed for consideration in other adult education programs, and four exhibits (sample of the Four-Year Follow-up Questionnaire, and copies of the letters received by the participants) are included.
