What Counts as Evidence Project (2000)

Phase 2 Report

The goal of the project described in this document was to develop activities that would allow Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) college practitioners to assess learners’ progress in math and in self-management and self-direction (SMSD).

The authors developed the activities based on information collected from surveys. The activities were then field-tested by 11 LBS college practitioners with more than 60 learners.

Based on their findings, the authors recommend that training for SMSD and math practitioners be provided in specific areas of assessment such as developing rubrics; a team of experienced LBS practitioners from different colleges be assembled to review and approve demonstration activities prior to field-testing; and guidelines be established to help LBS college practitioners understand the role of demonstrations within their programs and the bearing they have on determining learners' overall achievements.
