Adult Literacy Research: Opportunities and Challenges by John Comings
and Lisa Soricone
This occasional paper has two goals that support the building of a
stronger research base for the adult literacy field. The first goal is
to interest researchers in pursuing rigorous scientific research in this
field. Despite the many challenges to research, this field offers
researchers some opportunities to have a positive impact on education,
increase the research base, and advance their careers. The second goal
is to identify these challenges and approaches to overcoming them so
that future research could design more successful studies. Addressing
these challenges to research is a critical step toward building a larger
and stronger foundation of evidence to support practitioner decisions.

Evaluating and Interpreting Research Syntheses in Adult Learning and
Literacy by Harris Cooper
This occasional paper introduces the methods of research synthesis and
meta-analysis to researchers and consumers of research in the field of
adult learning and literacy. The first section defines key terms and
offers a brief history of how the methodologies developed. The second
section provides a conceptualization of research synthesis that views it
no differently from other research endeavors in the social sciences.
Then, the tasks of research synthesis are presented within the context
of a hypothetical example drawn from the literature on adult learning
and literacy.
