An Assessment of the Career Development Needs of ABE Students in Prince George's County, Maryland.
Welsh-Hill, Janet
A dual workshop/questionnaire approach was used in a needs assessment of adult basic education (ABE) students conducted in Prince George's County, Maryland, in spring 1980. The workshop advanced and clarified the concept of career development to teaching and administrative staff. Participants completed a needs assessment questionnaire according to their view of ABE students' needs. Another questionnaire assessed students' views of their career development needs. From 793 students in the program, 760 usable responses were gathered. With the exception of one item, 50% or more of the sample members felt they wanted help in all areas identified on the questionnaire. Study results supported the importance of career development in ABE to meet employability needs of the ABE population. Students most wanted to know what they do well and then how to get through the information on careers, training, and financial aid. Evidence was also provided that career development is worthy of emphasis in ABE programming. (YLB)
