About the Research Briefs
ProLiteracy has created a series of Research Briefs on adult literacy and education. They are 2,500- to 3,000-word summaries that offer a synthesis of research on a topic, implications for practice, and next steps in research.
Written by scholars who have demonstrated expertise on specific topics, ProLiteracy Research Briefs were developed to help adult literacy practitioners understand ideas that have emerged from research. They will also help researchers identify research needs by pointing to gaps in knowledge as part of an effort to respond to the needs of adult educators who are looking for relevant research to inform their work.
