Adult Basic Skills

Basic Skills consist of a course, a course of study, or an organized sequence of courses to provide instruction for individuals in elementary and secondary-level reading, writing, computation and problem-solving skills in order to assist them in achieving their academic, vocational, and personal goals. Elementary-level is generally recognized to mean that where appropriate, the coursework addresses the content and proficiencies at levels through the eighth grade. Secondary-level is generally recognized to mean that the coursework addresses the content and proficiencies at levels through the twelfth grade and may incorporate a high school diploma.
