ABE Regional Workshops in Tennessee; An Assessment of the Adult Basic Education Workshops in Tennessee, 1973-74.
Gunter, Jeannette; Dutton, Donnie
The study, an attempt to determine the overall effectiveness of the educational experiences provided at the Adult Basic Education regional workshops in Tennessee, used a questionnaire to gather demographic data and participant reaction to various facets of the workshops and an evaluation scale to obtain overall participant reaction to the short-term workshops. Arithmetical means and percentages employed were applied only to the more than 800 adult basic education personnel who attended any of the 10 workshops; no broader application to other population groups was made. Data were gathered pertaining to: profile of participants, physical facilities, objectives, program, overall rating, strengths, and weaknesses. Data are presented in lists of short phrases (e.g.: Strengths--good leadership, new ideas, etc.) for strengths and weaknesses; other factors were assigned numerical values. It was concluded that the 10 workshops were a success. Most of the dissatisfactions were based on matters related to scheduling, weather, or dissatisfaction with a particular consultant. (AG)
