The performance report contains the following: a list of the industrial partners; basic skills framework; chronological listing by company of courses offered; alphabetical listing of topics developed based upon partner need; customized workplace topics by partner; copies of participant profiles, assignment logs, and session control sheets; completed session control sheets for each of six cycles of direct services; and examples of evaluations used. The external evaluation begins with a rationale for and an overview of workplace literacy. A discussion follows of the four levels on which workplace literacy programs are evaluated. Other contents are as follows: listings of Project SIDE's activities, five main objectives, and training partners; a description of the characteristics of trainees; and information collected through onsite visits, review and analysis of evaluation materials, and review and analysis of project records. These conclusions are reported: ASCC's performance in providing training that matched critical needs identified by partners was outstanding; learning did take place; job performance improved; and two partners experienced a decrease in absenteeism attributed to the training. Extensive appendixes include the roster of employee partners; training dates, types, and organizations; session control sheets for training activities; and workshop evaluation form. (YLB)
