Evaluation in Adult Literacy Research. Project ALERT. Phase II.
Ntiri, Daphne Williams, Ed.
This document contains an evaluation handbook for adult literacy programs and feedback from/regarding the evaluation instruments developed during the project titled Adult Literacy and Evaluation Research Team (also known as Project ALERT), a two-phase project initiated by the Detroit Literacy Coalition (DLC) for the purpose of developing and testing a user-friendly program evaluation model for evaluating literacy operations of community-based organizations throughout Michigan under the provisions of Section 353 of the Adult Education Act. The handbook, which is intended for literacy program administrators, explains a six-step process for constructing literacy evaluation tools tailored to particular programs. Presented next is a 23-item reference list. The remainder of the document consists of feedback obtained during the pilot tests of the project-developed self-evaluation instruments to be completed by students and tutors participating in volunteer literacy programs. Appendixes constituting approximately 50% of this document contain the following: letter to Michigan literacy providers; glossary; sample questionnaire cover letter; ALERT feedback form; final revised self-evaluation program tutor and student survey questionnaires; self-evaluation program questionnaire; DLC policy statement, overview, board of directors, mission profile, and services and primary goals; and list of responding literacy sites.
