A community based study of adult literacy in North Carolina by Yevonne S Brannon( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A North Carolina study examined the problem of adult illiteracy in Spring 1988. Secondary data for the service areas of eight community colleges chosen as study sites indicated that approximately 25 percent of North Carolinans aged 25 years and older had completed less than the ninth grade in 1980 and the majority of them were unemployed. A review of community colleges' long-range plans for literacy service provision showed that four programs provided literacy education in community colleges; the annual retention rate was 33 percent; and new students accounted for 67 percent of students. Surveys of literacy service providers found that: (1) improvement was needed in publicity, networking, and student diagnosis; (2) instructors focused on basic skills instruction; (3) problems included low motivation and self-esteem; and (4) students quit school due to work or lack of interest. State directors of adult literacy programs in other states were interviewed to collect information on features of their programs. Roundtable discussions at study sites obtained input on the problem. Recommendations focused on industry-sponsored classes; advertising; special services; instructional services; staff development; interagency cooperation; and funding. (The document contains 48 references. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the report, included selected data for study sites, literacy plans for North Carolina community colleges, survey questionnaires, and an inventory of literacy services for study sites.)

An evaluation of adult basic education programs in North Carolina by Donna Marie Hughes( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An evaluation was made of the adult basic education (abe) program of the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges in the summer of 1988. The study used surveys to collect both opinion data and secondary information on aspects of abe programs such as budgets, student enrollment, and features of the instructional program. Information was sought by mail from 58 abe program directors (50 returns), 290 instructors (191 returns), and by telephone from 340 students enrolled during the 1987 fall quarter. The survey resulted in a profile of the abe programs at various colleges. Some of the results are the following: (1) abe program funds go mostly for instructional salaries; (2) most abe programs in the sample are administered by one director, and most instructors are part time; (3) 84 percent of the programs use volunteers, especially for retention and outreach activities and tutoring; (4) the instructional techniques used most frequently are classroom instruction, computer-assisted instruction, and one-to-one tutoring; (5) the majority of instructors teach an average of 1 to 10 students per class; (6) almost all of the programs use pretests and posttests to evaluate students; (7) students were generally positive about their abe classes; and (8) students liked all techniques except large classrooms. Recommendations for improvements were made in the areas of program publicity, student recruitment, student assessment, student retention, professionalization of the staff, class structure, and funding. (Report includes 25 tables, 6 figures, 14 references, and the program director, instructor, and student survey forms.) (Kc)

Status offender project, county data reports, Buncombe County by North Carolina State University( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first of three reports on a North Carolina project to help counties plan community based status offender programs describes a statewide needs assessment to collect information about the needs of status offenders and youth at risk of entering the juvenile justice system. A questionnaire covered situational and behavioral problems experienced along with questions on the intervention that would meet the specified needs. Data are reported in terms of problems experienced and program recommendations. Estimated program effectiveness scores are listed. Problems are grouped according to the following six needs: acceptable social and interpersonal values, appropriate education, appropriate living situations, mental health, physical health, and recreation. Program recommendations are classified as treatment, crisis intervention, or prevention types. (Cl)

The second of three documents of a project designed to help North Carolina counties plan community based status offender programs presents a general planning model. An overview traces five steps of the planning decision process, from determining the importance of status offender needs to the county to making program funding decisions based on evaluation data. Details of the 16 step planning decision model are given in two tracks--for the full task force and for a technical committee. The document concludes with sample worksheets for calculating the value of a program being considered for funding and for listing major variables in the final selection of programs. (Cl)
