The Guam State Plan for Adult Education, as implemented by Guam Community College, had five goals: provide a comprehensive adult education instructional program that is flexible and responsive to employment needs; increase enrollment and expand services for special groups; establish continuous needs assessment of targeted educationally disadvantaged adults; promote awareness and involvement with outside agencies and organizations; and implement special projects and teacher training projects. Six components were conducted at the college: (1) Adult Placement Testing Program; (2) Gateway Literacy Program; (3) English as a Second Language; (4) Professional Development; (5) Applied Biology and Chemistry; and (6) Adult High School Diploma. The college also provided leadership for the efficient management and implementation of the State Plan for Adult Education and Literacy. A year-end evaluation of the program, conducted by an outside evaluator for program year 1996, showed progress in meeting each of the five goals. Recommendations were made to strengthen the monitoring and evaluation processes and the links with outside organizations. (Appendixes contain a brief report of program accomplishments and financial data, forms used in the program, and a course guide for basic skills.) (KC)
