Hello all,
I'm a current LIS student at Wayne State University in 
Michigan.  I'm VERY interested in literacy issues.  I'm 
currently working on an assignment where we have created our 
own literacy service.  It is fiction.  We will not be setting 
up an actual literacy service, but we need to add certain 
components to our written proposal: ex. how we will measure 
We are trying to find ways of measuring outcomes.  We decided 
that it is best for literacy students to set their OWN 
goals.  One way we have decided to measure outcomes is 
through a goals sheet.  We would ask the students their goals 
in the beginning of the program, and then interview them to 
find out when they have achieved their goals.  All of this 
information would be recorded and used as a way of measuring 
That is our main way of measuring outcomes.  Do any of you 
have interesting methods of measuring outcomes in literacy 
programs that you would be willing to share?
Thanks in advance,
Jennifer Harper
