CRITERIA FOR MEASURING ADULT EFFECTIVENESS FOR DISADVANTAGED GROUP IMPADA PROJECT – OUTCOME 1

This report presents a review of findings from studies and publications about the effectiveness of adult education for disadvantaged groups. The main goal of the study was to recognize key criteria for measuring the effectiveness of adult education. Therefore, we focused the review around two questions: (i) what does it mean that education is effective and (ii) what are the ways to measure it. Answering those questions will help to understand the challenges of adult education for disadvantaged groups and – in consequence – to develop proper solutions of improving effectiveness of this education.

This report is first outcome of IMPADA project - Improving Adult Education of Disadvantaged Groups. The project aims to develop a Common Assessment Framework to evaluate the effectiveness of adult education for disadvantaged. Such Framework will help adult education providers in self-assessment, self-evaluation and – in consequence – improvement of provision of adult learning services for disadvantaged groups.
