A project developed and implemented a plan to retain those adult basic education students who are likely to be successful if they stay enrolled in the program but who are likely to drop out if program staff do not intervene. The plan involved use of an assessment instrument to identify these at-risk students, development of an individualized enrollment plan (IEP), and assignment of a case manager to address the retention issues with students so identified. The intake assessment form was developed and staff trained in its use. The 20 students identified as at risk worked with the case manager to develop their IEP, which included a specific retention/follow-up plan. Of the 20, 6 completed the General Educational Development program and test, 10 continued classes or tutoring, and 4 did not continue in the program. (The appendix contains the following: a case information form and checklist; an intake checklist; the format of the individual enrollment plan; teacher reactions to the case information form; a sample individual educational plan; a copy of the Barsch Learning Style Inventory; flowcharts for testing of writing, mathematics, and reading skills; a student record sheet; and two case studies.
