Judith Alamprese and I-Fang Cheng, Abt Global


June 14, 2021

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE) funded Manhattan Strategy Group and Abt Global to conduct the Advancing Innovation in Adult Education project. The goal is to inspire and promote the development and use of innovative approaches in adult education that can result in high quality services and positive outcomes for adult learners.

This first in a series of reports provides information about approaches for adults to earn a high school diploma or its equivalent that provide the time and flexibility busy adults need to participate in education. The secondary credential approaches include occupational training or earning of postsecondary credits as part of the credentialing option, and that involve web-based delivery of a credentialing program.
