The Functional Literacy Needs of Low-Literate Adult Basic Education Students.
Hayes, Elisabeth R.; Valentine, Thomas
Adult Education Quarterly, v40 n1 p1-14 Fall 1989
One hundred sixty adult basic education students functioning at or below the sixth-grade level rated the extent to which they needed to learn 20 functional tasks. Factor analysis suggested three broad categories: everyday reading and writing, math and measurement, and special literacy tasks. Cluster analysis identified distinct subgroups based on their comparative needs to learn these tasks. (SK)
