As part of its Research–Based Practices Initiative, CALPRO compiled a list of publications, reports, and fact sheets on varied topics relevant to adult educators. Although the number of research studies focusing on adult learners is limited, the items are evidence–based or recognized as "promising practices" by federal and state agencies.

CALPRO develops fact sheets on topics of interest to adult education instructional
staff and administrators. The purpose of the fact sheets is to provide information
about current trends and issues in adult education and to direct users to additional
resources on the topic. Each fact sheet presents one topic and takes the form of
frequently asked questions (FAQs).
