TIU Adult Education and Job Training Center, Lewistown, PA.
This document contains the final report and selected materials and products from Project Learner Goals, a project undertaken to assist the Pennsylvania Bureau of Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) in describing the form and content of project learner activities (activities serving short-term learner goals) within an ABLE-funded program and, ultimately, making recommendations for standards for programs serving project learners. The final report summarizes the objectives, outcomes, and impacts of Project Learner Goals, which included the following major activities: (1) research on project learner programs in Pennsylvania and nationally; (2) development of a working definition of "project learning"; and (3) development of an Individual Education Plan (IEP) format and assessment procedures that will be pilot tested in three ABLE programs serving project learners within Pennsylvania in 1999-2000. Appendixes constituting approximately 80 percent of the document contain the following items: (1) in-depth breakdown of the survey results; (2) practitioner guide that includes a definition of project learning, case studies of the goals and programs of two project learners, and guidelines for developing IEPs for project learners and assessing their progress; (3) an IEP for project learners; and (4) student intake data, assessment data, and exit data forms.
