ANNOUNCEMENT FROM OVAE:

************************************************************************
****
*****************************************************************

I am very pleased to announce that A Process Guide for Establishing
State
Adult Education Content Standards has been posted on the Adult Education
Content Standards Warehouse Web site
[http://www.adultedcontentstandards.org/howto.asp].
The American Institutes for Research developed the guide through a
contract
with the Office of Vocational and Adult Education to operate the content
standards warehouse project.  

A Process Guide for Establishing State Adult Education Content Standards
presents the steps for moving toward a fully integrated, standards-based
education system to improve instruction and learner outcomes.  Readers
will
find a range of suggestions and references.  The guide begins with an
introduction to standards-based education and then presents the
components
of standards-based education reform within the context of adult
education
programs.  Each chapter provides information and examples gathered from
research articles, discussions with state adult education staff and
standards experts, and reviews of standards documents.  Other features
of
the guide include practice activities, sample tools and templates, a
glossary, and additional references to support state teams and
initiatives.

I hope you will find A Process Guide for Establishing State Adult
Education
Content Standards to be a useful resource for making decisions related
to
the implementation of standards-based education reform and improvement.

Cheryl L. Keenan
Director, Division of Adult Education and Literacy
