Through its research, NCSALL addressed questions that concern educators, policymakers, and scholars. Such questions included: Why do some adult learners persist in their studies but others do not? What constitutes effective teaching and learning? What kinds of professional development activities are best for teachers? And how can a program's impact on adult learners be measured? NCSALL's research provided a structured way for those involved in adult literacy education to look at practice and learn from evidence, reducing reliance on trial and error.
