The Soul of a New System. New Jersey Adult Reading Project. F.Y. '80--F.Y. '84. Final Report.
Klem, Lynn
The New Jersey Adult Reading Project was a state project involving more than 500 New Jersey adult educators from 98 adult education programs around the state. The primary objective of the project was to develop a competency-based adult reading management system that would allow program completers to achieve the following goals: continue their education, get a job, understand their legal rights and responsibilities, improve their parenting skills, obtain a drivers license, and prepare their income taxes. Based on data from a survey of adult educators in the state and a field-test process that involved the administration of the Adult Interest Assessment Processes to 613 students from throughout the state, project staff developed a program entitled the Competency-Based Adult Reading Management System. Components of the system included a series of adult interest assessment processes, adult competency assessment tests, an adult reading skills array, a computerized prescription-generation program, and a student recordkeeping system. Data from pre- and posttests administered to program participants in the Reading Management Program showed evidence of the achievement of four of the six objectives. (MN)
