This study circle guide was created by the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL). The guide is part of NCSALL’s effort to help connect research and practice in the field of adult basic education and adult literacy.

This study circle guide—Learner Persistence in Adult Basic Education—is one of a series of study circles that NCSALL has developed. The
purpose of the study circles is to help staff developers and practitioners organize and conduct study circles that help practitioners read, discuss,
and use research to improve their practice.

This guide addresses issues of learner persistence, motivation, and retention in adult basic education (ABE). Based on findings from the NCSALL Adult Student Persistence Study, participants engage in an examination of their own interests and experiences with learner motivation and retention and examine strategies of other practitioners.
