How to Foster Persistence: High Impact Practices for Directors August 1, 2018 Josh Hayes Director of Adult Education College of the Mainland John Stevenson
Program Specialist TWC, Adult Education & Literacy Persistence Definition of Learner Persistence: Adults staying in programs for as long as they can, engaging in selfdirected study or distance education when they stop attending program services, and returning to program services as soon as the demands of their lives allow. Persistence is a continuous learning
process that lasts until an adult student meets his or her educational goals, and persistence could start through self-study before the first episode of participation in a program. Persistence ends when the student decides to stop learning. (Source: NCSALL, 2007) Activity 1

What kind of student are you looking for? Do your partners understand that you want serious students? Do your brochures, webpages and other communications reflect a program that is designed to achieve specific outcomes?

Provide services to students who will elect not to participate Orientation Securing a Strong Commitment Force Field Analysis A force field analysis is a process for analyzing supports and barriers that impact
persistence to a goal. First the student writes his goal. Next, the student lists all the things that support him in reaching the goal. For example, he might write items like family support, access to Internet or friends in the same class. Then, the student assigns weight to each item. The weights are ascribed numerically with number from one to ten. Next, the student lists all the barriers that stand in the way of achieving this goal.
For example, he might write thinks like the cost of tuition or lack of dependable transportation. Next, the students assigns weights to each barrier as he did with the supports. Finally, the weights of the supports and barriers are tallied. The student considers how he might reduce the weight of the barriers or increase his supports. Activity 3 Select a personal goal and use the force field
analysis template to identify key supports and barriers. Assign a weight (from 1 to 5) for each support and each barrier. Supports & Barriers - Top 10 List Positive Forces Relationships
