The 1992 activities in support of the goals described in the Guam State Plan for Adult Education focused on curriculum development and evaluation. Three major programs offered 48 daytime and 101 evening classes for students at 6 sites. The primary components of the adult education instructional programs were adult high school, General Educational Development (GED) preparation and testing, and adult basic education. Ten classes in GED preparation or from the adult high school program were offered within the Adult Correctional Facility. Survival skills and basic literacy formed the core of services provided for the Mental Health Facility and Goodwill Industries. A Work Place Literacy Program at a hotel concluded. The Job Opportunities and Basic Skills Program provided child care assistance and tuition for welfare recipients. The needs of adult immigrants centered on English as a Second Language (ESL). A third-party evaluation of the entire adult education program was completed; the final report commended the reliable self-evaluations. Cooperative agreements with government agencies and community-based organizations provided adult basic, literacy, ESL, GED, and adult high school opportunities for their clients. (Eight statistical tables illustrate enrollment profiles, functioning levels, reasons for separation, status upon entry, participant achievement, time and locations of classes, and personnel. Two financial reports are provided.) (YLB)
