Public Higher Education Performance Accountability Framework Report: Goal - Student Preparation Measure: Adult Basic Skills Proficiency Levels. Commission Report 08-05
California Postsecondary Education Commission
This report examines the various adult basic skills programs in operation in California, and explores program funding and structure, enrollment and demographics, and to the extent data allow, program outcomes. This measure is presented as part of the Commission's Performance Accountability Framework for California postsecondary education. Among the findings are that state-funded adult school programs have an overall completion rate of 65%. Courses geared toward older adults and adults with disabilities have the highest completion rates. Basic education and ESL programs have lower completion rates. In 2006-07, federally funded adult education programs met nine of 11 performance targets. This is a substantial improvement from 2005-06, when only three out of 11 performance targets were met.
