Expanding Our Horizons. 1995 Success Stories. Final Report.
Royce and Royce, Inc., Lancaster, PA.
The Success Stories project provided technical assistance to the Pennsylvania Department of Education's Bureau of Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) in selecting and recognizing 10 outstanding ABLE students via Midwinter Conference awards ceremonies and publication of the Success Stories Booklet and Flyers. In addition, the project sought to encourage greater participation of ABLE programs in Success Stories by providing resource specialists to novice agencies in the nominations process and increasing adult learner involvement by adding a former outstanding student to project staff. The project conducted a comparative study of programs who sponsored 1994/1995 Success Stories winners and agencies who did not participate in the awards process. Results indicated major differences in instructional level of clientele served, availability of paid and full-time staff, variety of funding sources, and staff/agency attitudes. Appendixes include a sample form for evaluating Success Stories of nominees and survey instruments. (YLB)
