*** Posted at the request of NCSALL ***

NCSALL has put a draft policy monograph, "An Evidence-based Adult Education 
Program Model Appropriate For Research", on its website.  Building on 
NCSALL's "Establishing an Evidence-based Adult Education System," this 
draft monograph seeks to establish a way for researchers to choose programs 
that offer an opportunity to employ the most appropriate research method 
for identifying and evaluating effective interventions. We have posted this 
draft to our Web site to invite researchers, practitioners, and other 
stakeholders in adult education to contribute to the drafting process by 
submitting comments. The draft is the result of over a  year's effort of 
summarizing the existing literature in our field, but it is still a "raw" 
product that needs the wisdom of practitioners and researchers in our 
field.  The document is long, but it does have a summary and is laid out in 
such a way that readers can easily find the parts they want to explore. So, 
even if you can only put a little bit of time into this effort and comment 
on only a part of the document, we urge you to do so.
