COABE Conference Report
CSMlearn is having a positive impact on adult education, and a consortium of education researchers presented about it at the 2017 Coalition on Adult Basic Education (COABE) National Conference in Orlando, Florida.
Patti Constantakis (Digital Promise), Robert Murphy (SRI International) and Shannon Sims (Mockingbird Education) shared the initial results from the Technologies in Adult Basic Literacies Evaluation (TABLE) Study in their session "Do Digital Learning Technologies Support Literacy and Math Skill Development for Low-Skilled Adults?" The TABLE Study examines the implications of technology in adult education by analyzing the effects of five digital adult literacy instructional systems, including CSM, My Foundations Lab (Pearson Education) and ALEKS (McGraw-Hill Education). CSM had the largest gains in both math and literacy, and the highest student engagement.
Vincent Briley, JaNice Marshall, and Victoria Berry (Tri-C Community College) presented on "Mission-Driven Innovation: The Adult Diploma Program at Cuyahoga Community College 2015–2017", highlighting how CSM is helping adult diploma candidates build the skills, persistence, and self-efficacy that they need to pass the WorkKeys Assessments and succeed in career pathways courses in Tri-C's innovative new approach to earning a high school diploma.
In addition, 5 CSM-Certified students were runners up for the Adult Learner of the Year Award. Our congratulations to Brian Russell, Andrea Vulgamore, Jamar Cameron, Patience Eutz, and Rhonda Worley!
