Formative Evaluation of the Adult Learning, Literacy and Essential Skills Program. Final Report
Human Resources and Skills Development Canada
This report presents the results of the formative evaluation of the Adult Learning, Literacy and Essential Skills Program (ALLESP). Data collection related to this evaluation took place between November 2008 and May 2009. The evaluation resulted in the following four recommendations: (1) It is recommended that Program objectives and activities should be revised to more accurately reflect the direction and scope of the Program and to ensure outcomes are achievable and measurable; (2) It is recommended that the Program continue its efforts to communicate, support and consult with stakeholders and funding applicants in order to ensure openness and transparency with regards to its priority setting and decision-making; (3) It is recommended that OLES (Office of Literacy and Essential Skill) continue with its commitment to improve its data collection systems so that sufficient and complete information is collected for monitoring and reporting purposes. In conjunction, it is recommended that proposal and reporting forms be updated to better reflect the CSGC (Common System for Grants and Contributions) codes and categories, thereby easing the burden on Program officers. Finally, recent revisions to the Program's reporting templates will require ongoing communication and support for funding recipients; and (4) It is recommended that the Program investigate various ways of supporting the transfer of the knowledge regarding funded projects and their results. Appendices include: (1) Program Logic Model; and (2) Evaluation Issues and Questions Matrix. (Contains 13 tables, 2 figures and 47 footnotes.)
