Assessment of Training Needs of Adults in Mohave County: Final Report.
The project was conducted to find out if there was a need for an adult education program to provide instruction in job-related competencies in the basic skills of reading, writing, math, spelling, and communications for the unemployed and underemployed of Mohave County, Arizona. The report presents the procedures used to identify the persons eligible and willing to take an adult basic education course related to job skills. Results of the study show the difficulty of locating and interviewing persons who may be uneducated, underemployed, or unemployed. Of 1,100 persons who may have less than an eighth grade education 164 were identified, 76 of them from welfare, employment, or other agencies. Of this number 32 indicated that they would take the course, which would justify the hiring of a part-time instructor. Not enough persons were located to substantiate the need for a continuing education program in adult basic education. The need for such education in Mohave County is described and recommendations for future studies are made. (MF)
