Summary

These profiles describe the implementation of alternatives to a traditional high school diploma for programs based on demonstrated competencies or life skill experiences. Over 100 profiles are provided. The information is designed to assist adult educators, administrators, teachers, and students to identify various approaches for serving adults who do not have a high school diploma. A glossary appears first. The profiles are arranged by states, which appear in alphabetical order. Each profile contains the following information: program title, contact person with address and telephone number, program requirements, characteristics, assessment, certification, and program outcomes. The newest alternatives included here are competency-based adult high school diploma programs and external high school diploma programs. Appendixes include information on the Adult Performance Level Project and New York State External High School Diplima Program, as well as the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of state directors of adult education.
