Under the Adult Education & Family Literacy Act (AEFLA), students can receive up to 10 hours of instruction before they are tested. Michael Michael A.

Because our funding requires that we test initially and then after a period of study, and then show educational gains, we feel it is necessary to maximize our potential for showing student progress and maintaining our grant program by giving the exam first. I can see good rationale behind waiting a few weeks and having students begin with group lessons to create a community atmosphere, especially for those with a negative educational background. I will consider your ideas and find out if my program is willing to try this out.
