Enabling and Supporting High Quality, Interconnected and Outcomes-oriented Service Delivery
The Quality Framework for Adult Literacy (Framework) has been developed to help facilitate quality improvements in adult literacy. The Framework is a tool set that includes a summary of promising practices in adult literacy, highlights of factors that impact learner outcomes, and a program self-assessment tool. Factors and promising practices featured in the Framework are based on current research and reflect what innovative programs around the country are doing to prepare adults to succeed in postsecondary education and work. The Framework has been piloted at adult literacy sites and is now available to providers and literacy grant makers. Click here to access the Framework. For additional information about the Framework please contact Laureen Atkins.
