The study investigated the assessment of the implementation of adult basic literacy programmes in Cross River State, Nigeria. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. Survey design was adopted for the study; and proportionate, stratified and simple random sampling techniques were used to choose a sample of 1,920 adult learners and 76 facilitators from 30 literacy centres. A questionnaire titled “Assessment of the Implementation of Adult Basic Literacy Programmes Questionnaire (AIABLPQ)” was used for data collection. It was a 12 item modified four point rating scale. The instrument was duly validated by experts and its reliability estimate was established as .78 using Cronbach Alpha reliability method. Mean was used in answering research questions while t-test statistics was used in testing the hypotheses. The results revealed, among others, that provision of educational materials for adult basic literacy programmes is inadequate. It was recommended, among others, that government should increase capital allocation with the intension of providing adequate funds for successful implementation of adult basic literacy programmes in the study area.
