The purpose of the Postsecondary and Adult Education research program is to contribute to the improvement of reading, writing, and numeracy skills of learners in adult education programs; the enhancement of targeted learning outcomes of postsecondary students; and the increase in access to, persistence in, and completion of postsecondary education. The long-term outcome of this program will be an array of tools and strategies (e.g., practices, assessments, programs, policies) that have been documented to be effective for improving education outcomes of adult learners and postsecondary students at the college level.
Additional research focused on Adult Education has been supported through the Interventions for Struggling Adolescent and Adult Readers and Writers topic.
