More accountable now than ever, adult literacy programs must prove that what they're doing is working. The Adult Literacy Assessment Tool Kit will give you everything you need to build an effective and accountable adult literacy program by showing you how to analyze its strengths and weaknesses and adapt accordingly. Field-tested by libraries around the country, the hands-on assessment tools in this book will help you to:

  • identify and evaluate the skill levels of your learners;
  • make changes to your program based on users' aptitudes;
  • write thorough and convincing grant proposals based on results; and, most importantly,
  • meet the needs of learners, instructors, and funders with a first-rate adult literacy program!

"...succeeds overwhelmingly at what it professes to be-a toolkit-a "how to" assessment instrument."
—Catholic Library World

"This practical, hands-on book not only gives good guidelines for assessing adult literacy programs but also gives clear directions for developing and refining them… It is operational in nature and very much a working tool."
—Australian Library Journal
