"Adventures in Assessment" is an annual journal of the system for Adult Basic Education Support (SABES), a comprehensive training and technical assistance initiative for adult literacy educators and programs. SABES accomplishes this goal through staff and program development workshops, consultation, mini-courses, mentoring, peer coaching, and other training activities provided by five Regional Support Centers located at community colleges throughout Massachusetts. The first three volumes present a comprehensive view of the state of practice in Massachusetts through articles written by adult literacy practitioners. Volume 1, "Getting Started," includes start-up and intake activities; volume 2, "Ongoing," shares tools for ongoing assessment as part of the learning process; volume 3, "Looking Back, Starting Again," focuses on tools and procedures used at the end of a cycle or term, including self, class, and group evaluation by both teachers and learners. Volume 4 covers a range of interests, and volume 5, "The Tale of the Tools," is dedicated to reflecting on Component 3 tools of alternative assessment. Volume 6, "Responding to the Dream Conference," is dedicated to responses to volumes 1-5. Volume 7, "The Partnership Project," highlights writings from a memtoring project for practitioners intersted in learning about participatory assessment.
