External Evaluation of Project ACT.
In order to assess the Adult Competency Training (ACT) Project activities and the development of an Adult Staff Development (ASD) program, designed to train adult educators through State-by-State and region-wide planning and coordination, an external evaluation was conducted by reviewing documents and records and by interviewing 40 persons from three groups: the policy board, resource teams, and the project staff. Section One introduces the purposes of the project and evaluation. Section Two describes the implementation of the external evaluation plan. Both negative and positive findings of the three groups are summarized in Section Three and group reactions are discussed in relationship to Project ACT's future role and outcomes. The scaled and rank order data, gathered from the interviews, notes, and records, are tabulated. Section Four offers the conclusions and recommendations to the policy board in addition to a separate list of findings and comparisons between the three groups. The conclusions point out the need for further cooperation between local and State agencies. Recommendations refer to the maintenance and improvement of the adult staff development system and its resource teams; State and local cooperation; inservice programs, and their integration with professional undergraduate and graduate education.
