Managing Progress: A Staff Development Package on Evaluation in Adult Literacy and Basic Education.
Intended for adult basic education program coordinators and the parent institutions of these programs, this package is designed for use with groups or individuals to introduce and develop the idea of evaluation in adult basic education programs. It is suggested for use in a workshop format; the whole package should take approximately 2 full days to cover. The four units are as follows: (1) evaluation (why and how to evaluate in an adult literacy and basic education program); (2) setting program goals and objectives (why programs need to enunciate goals and objectives, who should do this and how, and links with the process of evaluation); (3) group, class, or individual tuition goals (course planning and evaluation within the framework of the program goals and objectives); and (4) evaluating student outcomes (evaluating student competencies and outcomes within the context of achieving program goals). Each unit is divided into three components. Trainer's notes give detailed content information and practical examples for the trainer to read and use where appropriate and suggest workshop ideas and activities, for example, small and large group discussion, when to use practical exercises (worksheets), and when to give out handouts. Handouts are copies of sections of text from the trainer's notes. Worksheets are practical exercises that provide participants with practical experience of various processes. (YLB)
