I-BEST: Moving Low-Skilled Citizens to Career and College Pathways
Abstract: Washington state's integrated basic education and skills training (I-BEST) is an instructional model that pairs two instructors—-one from a college--level workforce education program and one from adult basic education—to instruct 50% of class time. Together, faculty members develop integrated program outcomes, plan curricula and assess student learning and skill development. The programs are built on education and career pathways and include college-level credits.
