A study examined 43 research projects conducted between FY89 and FY93 with funding under Section 353 of the Adult Education Act (AEA) grants and 4 additional research projects funded under other sections of the AEA. The project reports were collected by contacting each state literacy resource center, searching the ERIC system and a Division of Adult Education and Literacy guide to available 353 resources, and contacting individual contracting agencies directly. The purpose, methodology, and findings of each project for which a report was obtained were summarized in a brief, standard format. Similarities, correlations, and/or contradictions among the projects were identified. Most of the Section 353 projects were funded as demonstration projects delivering direct student services or staff development activities. Few projects had a true experimental design. The contact persons listed on each report were sent letters requesting information on follow-up activities and further developments since their projects' completion. Because only two responses were received, the follow-up portion of the study was abandoned. The project summaries were published in a 32-page booklet for distribution to interested adult educators through Pennsylvania's state literacy resource centers. (MN)
