Guidelines for the Development and Study of Cooperative Adult Education Programs.
Moore, Allen B.; And Others
Fourth in a series of five, the document presents guidelines for the development and study of a cooperative adult education program or for the evaluation of an existing program. Intended to be "content free," the guidelines focus on the processes of cooperative efforts. The 12 areas of concern are: needs assessment, objective setting and instructional content development, staffing, procedures and materials, pre-planning, resource acquisition and expenditure plan, program administration, job placement and promotion, internal and external communication, evaluation, accepting and screening participants, and counseling services for adult students. The format for each of these concerns includes: an overview, questions, and a section headed "suggestions on how." General comments stress the importance of documentation in the planning effort, joint meetings (of cooperating agencies to increase understanding and commitment), and a steering committee representing all interests involved in the program.
