Developing a Competency-Based Adult Education (CBAE) Program. A Handbook for Kansas Adult Educators.
Goodman, Deborah
This handbook for Kansas adult educators presents a process for providing competency-based adult education (CBAE) and supporting materials. The narrative describes and then charts these seven steps in development and implementation of a CBAE program: develop and adapt philosophy, evaluate current program, collect set of goals and objectives from which to select a core curriculum, choose core curriculum based on community consensus, develop program (curriculum, staff inservice training, evaluation of student progress), field test components of the CBAE process, and implement on full scale. Some questions concerning CBAE are then answered. Appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the handbook, include (1) representative statement of philosophy from California, (2) representative statement of philosophy and program evaluation form from New Jersey, (3) student needs and interests assessment tools and program objectives lists (Choosing Competencies or Life Skills materials, including Student Interest Survey, Item Pool, Adult performance Level Objectives, and List of Ranked Competencies), and (4) the brief article, Suggestions for Organizing an APL Classroom or Learning Center.
