Findings from the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL) Research
This webcast consists of a panel discussion on persistence in adult basic education (ABE), English for speakers of other languages (ESOL), and General Education Development (GED) programs, as well as the findings of a National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NSCALL) study entitled, “Supporting the Persistence of Adult Basic Education Students.” The webinar presents a working definition of persistence, examines existing research on persistence, and describes NCSALL’s three-phase study of the factors that support and inhibit persistence. The panelists, who include a program administrator and a former adult education student, discuss the successes and challenges that they encountered in their efforts to increase student persistence. Topics include the importance of personal support, methods of encouraging persistence, and barriers that adult education students face in program persistence.
