Competency-Based Adult High School Completion Student Services Guide.
Singer, Elizabeth; And Others
Designed as part of a 310 Special Demonstration and Teacher Training Project undertaken at Brevard Community College, this student services guide contains information to assist adult education administrators, counselors, instructors, and office personnel in meeting the needs of students enrolled in adult/community education schools. Primary emphasis is placed on the Competency-Based Adult Education (CBAE) high school completion process. Following introductory material, the guide contrasts the characteristics of conventional and competency-based instruction, and delineates the professional roles and responsibilities of program administrators, counselors, and instructors in CBAE. An overview is provided of the program offerings at adult education centers, including details on adult basic education (ABE), English as a Second Language (ESL), adult high school completion, and general education development (GED) programs. CBAE intake and exit procedures are delineated next, for adult high school completion, ABE, ESL, and GED programs, as well as for co-enrolled students and non-credit courses. After reviewing registration and add/drop procedures, the guide looks at steps in the diagnostic/placement process and outlines adult high school completion graduation requirements and minimum student performance standards. The next sections cover the adult high school completion grading system; aspects of CBAE classroom management (e.g., classroom orientation, learning procedures, the role of the learning facilitator, and records and resource management); policies regarding CBAE grades, testing, and credits; and CBAE record keeping. Appendices provide samples of various forms and a sample student learning guide. (EJV)
