Q9. Did adult learners identify more goals across time?

High school equivalency or diploma goals per adult learner fluctuated from 11% to 16%, yet increased overall. The percent of job-related goals within adult learners stayed approximately the same, in the 5% to 10% range. The proportion of postsecondary goals per learner also remained flat from 2006 to 2010, between 4% and 5%.
