Adult College Completion Tool Kit

The Adult College Completion Toolkit is a collection of resources designed to connect state administrators and local practitioners to the strategies, resources, and technical assistance tools resulting from the Department’s work in the area of adult education. The tool kit focuses on three key areas: access, quality, and completion. Four target student populations include veterans, adult basic education students, incarcerated individuals, and skilled immigrants.

The Adult College Completion Tool Kit was developed to help policymakers at the state and local level implement practical evidence-based solutions that increase the number of graduates who earn high-quality degrees and certificates required to compete for good jobs in the 21st century global economy. College completion is a shared responsibility; this tool kit also provides resources for adult education administrators, teachers, and students. It provides a wealth of resources and tools to help state administrators and local practitioners in this work. The tool kit also outlines strategies to achieve the president’s goal and offers examples of how state and local programs are implementing those strategies.


I am interested in learning how you might use the Tool Kit resources in the key ares of access, quality, and completion.  As you review the Tool Kit, please share your ideas.  Thanks!  Ellen 

The College Completion toolkit has a comprehensive list of resources esp. in the Access section (pg. 10). It mentions the Integrating Career Awareness in the ABE/ESOL classroom guide. This guide can be found at and can be downloaded for free as a PDF and the individual worksheets are also available to download as Word documents so that they can be edited for customized usage.
