Summary

This document suggests the following eight model indicators of quality in adult education programs: (1) learners demonstrate progress toward attainment of basic skills and competencies that support their educational needs; (2) learners advance in the program or complete program requirements that allow them to continue their education or training; (3) an ongoing, participatory planning process exists that is guided by evaluation and based on a written plan that considers community demographics, needs, resources, and economic and technological trends; (4) curriculum and instruction is geared to individual learning styles and levels of needs; (5) an ongoing staff development process exists that considers the specific needs of staff, offers training in instruction, and includes opportunities for practice and systematic follow-up; (6) students' needs for support services are identified and either provided for or referred to other agencies; (7) population in the community identified in the Adult Education Act as needing services is served; and (8) students remain in the program long enough to meet their education needs. The document also contains the following: an overview; definitions of quality indicators and performance standards; a description of the process used to develop the indicators; sample measures for each indicator; a list of six resources; and lists of focus group participants and state directors of adult education.
