The Role of State Staff in Promoting Student Persistence

This workshop will provide state staff  with a wide variety of instructional and management strategies they can use with local programs for increasing student motivation and persistence.  Research on student persistence, including the National Center for the Study of Adult Literacy and Learning's (NCSALL) Adult Persistence Study, will be examined to determine new insights, information, and strategies.  Programmatic and professional development options for promoting student persistence will be explored, including:  1) the critical first three weeks and now to get students settled, 2) the high risk factors that lead adults to drop out and how to compensate for them, and 3) the adult learners willingness to return to call if they feel the door is open.
