A Follow-Up Study of Adults Passing the General Education Development Test Upon Completion of Preparation in a Kentucky Adult Learning Center During Fiscal Year 1973.
Nave, Wallace K.
The primary purpose of the study was to ascertain the present employment status, plans for future education, attitude toward existing local educational programs, and attitude toward education in general of the 629 adults who passed the General Education Development (GED) test after preparation at one of the 14 learning centers in Kentucky during fiscal year 1973. Existing on-file records and a mailed questionnaire furnished the data employed to present a general description of the subjects in the study. Non-respondent bias is analyzed and a large portion of the document deals with the analysis of such data as age and sex, race, marital status, highest grade completed, reason for leaving school, other school experiences, employment status, and attitudes. Conclusions are drawn regarding the need for and justification of continuing and/or expanding adult education opportunities. Twenty-eight tables offer concise data analysis and appendixes provide data collection instruments, letters to GED graduates and unsolicited comments by respondents. (MW)
