The Adult Transitions Longitudinal Study

ATLAS (The Adult Transitions Longitudinal Study )
The Adult Transitions Longitudinal Study (ATLAS) is a research project documenting the educational outcomes for adult basic education students who participated in an ABE- to- College Transition project (an adult literacy program for graduates to prepare for and succeed in postsecondary education). The project studied a group of 225 adult students to discover whether they enrolled, persisted and succeeded in post-secondary education following completion of a 15-week transition course. The mixed-method study documents their educational trajectories, along with the individual, program and college factors that supported or hindered them in attaining positive college outcomes.
