Assessing Success in Family Literacy and Adult ESL book coverAssessing Success in Family Literacy and Adult ESL

CAL CLASSIC

Daniel D. Holt and Carol Van Duzer (Editors)

Programs that teach adult English language learners face increased accountability demands from their funders to meet program and learner goals. Assessment and evaluation play a critical role in measuring progress toward these goals. This publication provides guidance on developing an effective evaluation plan for adult English language programs—whether in the context of family literacy, workplace and workforce literacy, or general language development. With an emphasis on surveys, interviews, observation measures, and performance samples, the authors show how staff members and learners can gain accurate information about how well they are meeting their goals. The book provides many sample assessment tools and examples of strategies for summarizing and analyzing assessment data that can be customized to meet program needs. 2000.
