Programmed Instructional Materials for Adult Basic Education: An Empirically-Based Evaluation of Materials Developed by the Adult Learning Center. Final Report.
North Carolina State Univ., Raleigh. Adult Learning Center.
The report contains empirically-based evaluations of four adult basic education programed learning programs: How to Manage Your Money; Jobs; Looking Ahead in Life; and Safety. Measures of the amount learned from these programs indicate that, in general, they led to sufficient degrees of learning to justify their wider distribution to appropriate adult basic education students. More particularly, the Jobs and Safety programs led to relatively superior amounts of learning, while Money and Looking Ahead led to an adequate amount by previously established criteria. Students who used these programs and a sample of teachers for whom these programs are intended generally evaluated them favorably. The error rates for all programs were extremely low, indicating that the programs are successful by the error rate criterion. (Author/NH)
