Bureau of Occupational and Adult Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC. Div. of Adult Education.
This document contains abstracts describing competency-based programs related to the Adult Performance Level (APL) project and adult education. The catalog is divided into two sections: state program implementation and local program implementation. The first section describes programs and research projects currently active in Alabama, California, Kansas, Louisiana, New York, Oregon, Texas, and Tennessee. Many of the program descriptions include the history of the project, the major program objectives, the process, and the expected outcomes and products. A contact person is usually listed as well. The second section describes programs at Northwest Iowa Technical College; at Lincoln Technical Center in Venice, Illinois; and in the Urbana School District in Urbana, Illinois. Several of the programs discuss the competency-based external high school diploma which is an alternative to the four-year high school diploma program based on Carnegie units and to the General Education Development (GED) Test.
