Collins, Sheila; And Others
This report on the second year of the Workplace Education Program evaluates 16 programs run by 15 labor unions during the 9-month period between October 1, 1988 and June 30, 1989. The assessment was designed (1) to collect a program-wide database for program documentation; (2) to examine program impact on students' basic literacy skills, on student attitudes toward and self-confidence in learning, on employment patterns, and on student interest in issues beyond the classroom and workplace; (3) to provide qualitative and quantitative documentation of union progress in designing and implementing program assessment tools; and (4) to make recommendations for further program development. The report consists of four sections containing the following information: (1) an overview of program data; (2) results of a survey of 1,023 students in 10 unions; (3) case studies of 6 programs, indicating their impact from the perspective of teachers and administrators; and (4) profiles of individual students who have experienced success in the program in a variety of ways. Appended materials include the survey instrument, curriculum samples, an outside evaluation of one staff development program, samples of evaluation measures, excerpts from a student magazine, and questionnaire adaptations by individual programs.
