Cataloging Adult Education Programs in Region VIII and In-Depth Study of Selected Exemplar Programs. Final Report.
Sjogren, Douglas; Jacobson, Larry
The final report of a project that developed a catalog of all 4,783 adult education programs in Region 8 (Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming) is presented. The document discusses two aspects of the project: (1) the development and implementation of the catalog and (2) the identification and in-depth study of nine successful adult education programs. The catalog itself and the nine studies are not included. The catalog project staff, program identification techniques, catalog assembly and distribution, and costs are discussed, with four tables providing summary data on the programs by State and region, and catalog evaluation. Reaction to the catalog was neutral, and it is stated that in its present form, the catalog has limited utility at the local level. Procedures for conducting studies of the nine programs included identifying appropriate programs and gathering information through on-site visits. The bulk of the document is taken up by appended material, which includes: the instructions and program information report form (five pages); catalog coding and computer procedures (six pages); introduction and indexes for the Colorado catalog (40 pages); and observation and interview forms used for program evaluation (12 pages).
