Adult Basic Education/diploma students will be pre- and post-tested to see if there is a better understanding of measurement and math skills as a result of the residency activities. We will use the federally-approved Test of Adult Basic Education and a ruler-use exercise. 2. English as a Second Language teachers will provide a qualitative assessment of students' involvement in their learning goals in literacy at the end of the residency. 3. We will use video to document students' qualitative response to the residency.
Seven Adult Basic Education learners created long stitch books and learned use of the ruler, estimating size, and demonstrated precision in measuring. Fifteen adult English Language Learners wrote stories and created Zines relevant to their adult lives, but within their reading level (high content/low skill level). All seven Adult Basic Education learners showed level gains on the federally mandated Test of Adult Basic Education and 60% of English Language Learners showed level gains.
