Andragogy's Transition into the Future: Meta-Analysis of Andragogy and Its Search for a Measurable Instrument
Taylor, Bryan; Kroth, Michael
Journal of Adult Education, v38 n1 p1-11 2009
This article is a meta-analysis of the theory of andragogy and its search for a measurable instrument. The article explores three areas surrounding andragogy: (a) its concept and history, (b) its assumptions, and (c) its primary criticisms. In examining these three areas, a foundation is established for the creation of an instrument to provide measurable data on the assumptions put forth by Malcolm Knowles.
