Office of Vocational and Adult Education, Washington, DC. Div. of Adult Education.
This paper identifies and describes techniques that states may use to evaluate the three components of their programs funded under Section 353 of the Adult Education Act: (1) state administration; (2) special projects and staff training programs; and (3) effects or impacts of projects on local programs and instructors. Evaluation of these components is mandated by the Adult Education Act of 1988. The paper includes an overview of recommended techniques for each of the three components and appendixes providing detailed guidelines on evaluation processes, a summary of appropriate evaluation/monitoring approaches to the five categories of Adult Basic Education (ABE) Special Projects, and a list of principles and diagnostic questions from ABE staff development self-study, as well as an annotated bibliography of six documents on relevant administrative and evaluation questions that are readily available to state adult education programs.
