Too often adult-education programs fal­ter because those who set them up lack sources to turn to for guidance in plan­ning curricula; now John R. Verduin, Jr., provides a framework, a general model educators can use for effective curriculum building. Verduin's theoretical approach fea­tures a curriculum model consisting of five major elements: rationale (direction, philosophical position); outside political forces; goals; instruction; and evalua­tion. Each element receives chapter-length treatment. The discussion is gen­eral and the principles derived are broad enough to apply to any adult-learning program. Verduin's goal is to provide a framework within which the adult edu­cator can make intelligent decisions. In the last chapter, however, he turns from general discussion to specific application of the models, constructs, and ideas ex­plored in this book. Ideas in this chapter should help those involved in adult edu­cation make the transition from a theo­retical model to actual curriculum work.

In the United States, the nomenclature of adult education includes adult literacy, adult secondary education, and English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) services provided to undereducated and limited English proficient adults. Those receiving adult education services have diverse reasons for seeking additional education. With the passage of the WIA, the assessment of adult education students became mandatory-regardless of their reasons for seeking services. The law does allow the states and local programs flexibility in selecting the most appropriate assessment for the student. The purpose of the NRC's workshop was to explore issues related to efforts to measure learning gains in adult basic education programs, with a focus on performance-based assessments.

This volume is the fifth and last in a series that gives a comphehensive view on the present status and future prospects of adult education in Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) member countries. The series attempts to show what kind of national policies and strategies are required to increase public participation in adult education and to improve its overall efficiency in order to meet high priority societal, group, and individual learning needs. Chapter 1 of this volume considers the implications of treating the education of disadvantaged as part of comprehensive national policy for adult education. While stressing that the rhetoric about the importance of serving the educational needs of disadvantaged adults has not been matched by polices, it points to the progress that has been made. The main conclusion of the chapter is that a proper set of polices implies the adoption of special measures to identify and satisfy the unmet educational needs of the disadvantaged. The next four chapters consist of country case studies from Australia, Germany, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Chapter 6 deals with the major problem of how to induce disadvantaged adults to participate in adult education. It is argued that those administering adult education programs have paid far too little attention to the decisive influence of the way information is processed and disseminated. None of the emerging systems of recurrent education designed to encourage adult learning will improve in efficiency and do justice to the disadvantaged unless stimulating information is comprehensively presented. The last chapter is devoted to the financial implications of widening the access of the disadvantaged to education. A key section of the chapter states five propositions about program planning, each having implications for public expenditures. (KC)
