A Correlational Study: Success, Stability and Staying Power for Adult Beginning Readers.
Richardson, Judy S.
To ascertain what variables contribute to success of adult literacy programs, a study of 107 adult students in a literacy program was undertaken over a period of two years. Program success was defined as an attendance rate of 65%. It was hypothesized that the four characteristics of age, sex, employment, and marital status would be predictors of program success. Specifically, it was predicted that older students who are employed, married with children, and female would be most stable. Analysis of the data indicated no significance for any variables. The four characteristics selected for this study cannot be considered the most important factors for predicting program success. (TJ)
