Program Characteristics that Predict Improved Learner Outcomes
Patterson, Margaret Becker; Mellard, Daryl
Adult Basic Education and Literacy Journal, v1 n2 p83-92 Sum 2007
This study identifies adult education program characteristics that predict improved learner outcomes through statistical analyses of data across four years in a single state. Data indicate that, collectively, several predictors contribute to our understanding of learner outcomes, including (a) learner entry level, (b) size of community, (c) staff qualifications, and (d) learner exposure to high-quality services. A surprising finding was the lack of robust outcome predictors that maintain consistency from one year to another. (Contains 2 tables.)
