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.
