Policy to Performance Toolkit: Transitioning Adults to Opportunity
Alamprese, Judith A.; Limardo, Chrys
Office of Vocational and Adult Education, US Department of Education
The "Policy to Performance Toolkit" is designed to provide state adult education staff and key stakeholders with guidance and tools to use in developing, implementing, and monitoring state policies and their associated practices that support an effective state adult basic education (ABE) to postsecondary education and training transition system. As state adult education staffs engage in efforts to expand options for low-skilled adults' attainment of further education, information is needed to help guide states in creating systems with effective policies and practices. The "Policy to Performance Toolkit" is based on the processes and findings from the Policy to Performance project, which was funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Vocational and Adult Education and conducted by Kratos Learning (Kratos) and Abt Associates during 2009-2012. Policy to Performance states' use of policy, practice development, and testing processes provided lessons and examples that are useful to all states to move forward in developing a state ABE transition system. The following are appended: (1) AIDDE© Process for Planning ABE Transition System; (2) Analyzing State Data Form; (3) Analyzing State's Current ABE Transition System; (4) Analyzing State Policies and Guidance to Support ABE Transition Form; (5) Analyzing Partnerships Form; (6) Analyzing State Environment Form; (7) Identifying Gaps in an ABE Transition System; (8) ABE State Transition System Plan; (9) Messaging Tool; (10) Joint Letter of Support; (11) Planning Technical Assistance Form; (12) Using Data to Assess Transition Activities Form; (13) Policy Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation (PPIE©) Process for State Transition Policies in Adult Education; and (14) Selected Resources from the Policy to Performance Resource Center.
