Supporting Student Persistence

Free

with Kaye Beall

Self-paced. Available any time. Get started today!

Adults choose to enroll in ABE, ESOL, and ASE classes with goals that require lengthy time commitments. Due to the complexity of adult students’ lives, many factors can either support or hinder students in persisting in programs until they reach their goals. Delve into the research conducted by the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL) on persistence and its implications for your instruction and program practices. The researchers featured in this course interviewed Pre-GED students to find out what supported or hindered their persistence in adult basic education programs. Learn about the four supports to persistence that they identified—management of positive and negative forces, establishment of a goal by students, progress toward reaching a goal, and building self-efficacy.

By the end of this course, you will be able to explain the definition of persistence and discuss the four supports to persistence.
