Alberta Literacy Inventory Report.
Alberta Dept. of Advanced Education, Calgary.
This report presents results of a study to identify existing literacy programs and resource centers in Alberta and profile the individuals who hold a stake in Alberta's literacy programming efforts. It begins with highlights of project results related to programs, program administrators, instructors/tutors, and learners (all groups) and a summary of similarities related to programs, learners, and literacy practitioners. A 34-item bibliography is provided. The body of the report begins with an introduction to the study, including its context. Section 2 details research methodology. Sections 3-5 provide inventories (composite portraits and data) on these programs that were identified: 63 of 65 tutor-based literacy programs, 241 of 253 institutional literacy programs, and 52 libraries housing 53 literacy resource centers. Section 6 compares data from the tutor-based and institutional literacy programs. Sections 7-13 provide profiles and discussions of these stakeholders in literacy programming: tutor-based literacy program coordinators, literacy program administrators, volunteer tutors, literacy instructors, tutored learners, institutional learners (grade levels 0 to 9), and institutional learners (10 to 12). Section 14 compares the three learners groups. Appendices to the report contain the following: maps of learner interview sites; inventory instruments and statistics; profile instruments and statistics; response rates for all instruments; and 34 references.
