ADP Task Preparation

This course guides students through the six required tasks for the Adult Diploma Program (ADP). A task is a project related to the skills needed to function and progress in daily living situations. Reading a map, understanding a lease, writing a resume, and measuring the area of a room are examples of task requirements. Each completed task is evaluated by the teacher/assessor and students must demonstrate a working understanding of the finished task. Sixty-four generalized life skill competencies are grouped into the following task areas: Community Awareness, Personal and Family Health, Occupational Preparation, Personal and Social Awareness, Consumer Awareness, and an Individual Skill Area. With an instructor's guidance, students work individually and in small groups to research, study, and collect information necessary to complete the tasks.
