This resource guide was developed to help local adult basic and literacy education (ABLE) programs throughout Ohio implement the state's Indicators of Program Quality, which were drafted in 1992 in response to the National Literacy Act of 1991. The guide provides a context for using the Indicators in ABLE programs and includes suggestions for implementation. The information provided in the guide is designed to serve as a springboard for developing creative and unique solutions to program concerns that will assist with the delivery of quality ABLE services to adults. The guide is intended for use in two settings: as a follow-up to a program review or as the focus of a staff meeting. The guidelines, forms, and activities included in the guide are organized by the seven indicators as follows: (1) student achievement (documentation, setting goals, transition planning); (2) physical environment (compliance, assessment, management); (3) program planning (creating the written plan, implementing the plan, program administration); (4) curriculum and instruction (designing a curriculum, designing instruction); (5) professional development (accessing professional development information, documenting staff participation); (6) support services (creating, communicating, and implementing and monitoring the referral plan); and (7) recruitment (developing awareness of recruitment needs, designing a recruitment plan, implementing and monitoring the recruitment plan).
