An Evidence-based Adult Education Program Model Appropriate for Research

Find Another Resource

This monograph proposes a set of principles that describe programs in which researchers can conduct studies that compare different approaches to instructional and support services. Though this program model is based on the best available professional wisdom and empirical evidence, it is untested. This model should be tested to assess its impact on participation—in terms of gains in skills and knowledge—in programs that conform to it. Once the model has been tested, further research could evaluate the relative merits of different approaches to instruction and support, or evaluate different definitions of each principle. Chapter Seven sets out a research agenda to test and improve this model.
