The effectiveness of Utah's adult education (AE) program was evaluated. In September 1992, directors of 42 AE centers and 6 other sites serving adults in Utah completed questionnaires regarding AE program indicators/standards regarding administration, planning, facilities, instruction, staff development, community and public relations, evaluation, student services, and finance. In January 1993, the directors were asked to rerate those areas they had marked as needing improvement. Thirty-one completed questionnaires were returned. Additional data were obtained from eight site visits. According to the directors, their programs are generally well administered and well planned, their facilities are appropriate for AE, instruction and instructional materials are meeting most needs, staff development has improved significantly, community and public relations indicators are being met, program evaluation processes are improving, and student services are performing adequately. Among those areas cited as needing further improvement were program philosophy and operating goals, accessibility of facilities to disabled students, feedback regarding programs' effectiveness in meeting community and labor needs. (Appended are a list of AE centers contacted, the center director questionnaire, the state's present and proposed AE student questionnaires and center director's comments regarding the student questionnaire, and a report assessing testing activities.)
