Locating Statistics and Resources in Adult, Career, and Career-Technical Education. Practice Application Brief.
Wagner, Judith O.
Finding statistics and materials on adult, career, and career-technical education can be a complex and time consuming task, so this brief includes a variety of resources designed to help searchers find information and also suggests specific actions searchers may take, including the following: (1) talking with colleagues about their search successes and failures; (2) participating in discussion groups; and (3) using Google to search with Boolean operators and proper use of quotation marks. An annotated bibliography listing 50 World Wide Web sites organized into categories adult education, adult literacy, career education, career and technical education, training, curriculum developers, publishers/distributors, resource centers/organizations, statistics, and journals constitutes approximately 80% of this document. Some of the recommended websites include links to full-text sites that include proceedings, teaching guides, newsletters, journals, lesson plans, directories, and glossaries. (MO)
