Intake Procedures as a Factor in Identifying and Addressing Barriers to Attendance of Adult Education Students.
Hubble, Judy Hafley
A study explored the nature of intake procedures of Texas adult education programs. Research on barriers to attendance and strategies for retention were reviewed, and the current use of intake procedures to identify and address barriers to attendance was summarized through a survey of 374 Literacy, Even Start Family Literacy, Adult Basic Education (ABE), and General Educational Development (GED) programs in Texas. The study found that respondents may not use the intake process to counter barriers to attendance as effectively as they could, and some current practices revealed in the study seem to be contributing to institutional barriers to attendance. The study revealed that there may be a need for future research into the areas of a dynamic intake approach, the use of the stop-out period, and the act of gathering intake data.
