Building Basic Skills for Adults in Small Remote Communities (2002)

Final Report to the Office of Learning Technologies Project #99561

Residents of many rural and remote communities throughout Canada are not within realistic reach of face-to-face basic skills training, yet they are often in the most acute need of such training. These individuals are at a disadvantage because literacy programs and tutor support are rarely available in these communities. Through the research project presented in this paper, entitled "Building Basic Skills for Adults in Small Remote Communities," researchers examined the feasibility of developing and assessing literacy and numeracy skills at a distance, using audiographics and teleconferencing technology. The target group for this project was primarily adults whose opportunities were severely limited by their current need for literacy upgrading.

This report includes an executive summary, introduction, description of the project, project findings, conclusion, and several appendices that contain assessment tools for basic skills programs.
