A Study of Potential Incremental Success Factors Among Basic Education and Employment Preparation Students (2001)

The goal of adult basic education programs is to see the student make the transition to permanent, meaningful employment or to postsecondary studies that will lead eventually to such employment. While most adult students will achieve the goal, a minority of students will not. However, while those students don’t achieve the major program goal, their educational experiences can still improve their lives. This is the kind of incremental success examined in this study.

The author notes that incremental success factors could be used to assess progress towards the outcomes of such programs. As well, a set of incremental success factors could be established and used to inform governments and program providers about the structure, content and delivery of the programs.

The study was carried out for the Government of Alberta and Bow Valley College. More information about the college is available at www.bowvalleycollege.ca
