The process drew on existing research, primarily by the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL) and associated promising strategies, and engaged adult education programs as research partners in adapting and testing those strategies for their program contexts. A total of 18 adult education programs from five New England states participated in the action research project. This report contains the results of their research. World Education, 2009.
