 WICAT RELEASES SIX NEW ADULT EDUCATION PRODUCTS
 OREM, Utah, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Wicat (NASDAQ: WCAT) today


announced that it is releasing six new adult education courses to meet the unique educational needs of adult learners. These products will include Functional Literacy, Functional Numeracy, Basic Literacy, Basic Numeracy, Life and Work Skills, and a comprehensive Adult Test of Basic Skills, which correlates to most national tests of adult learning including TABE, ABLE and CASAS. Wicat also sells a complete GED curriculum and testing program correlated to the national GED test.
 Other vendors of computer software have repackaged K-12 solutions for adults or offer partial or limited courseware in adult education. Wicat's new adult courseware encompasses both functional literacy and numeracy for adults through high school GED requirements and also addresses life and work skills.
 Functional Literacy provides adults with instruction and practice in the areas of reading, phonics, comprehension, vocabulary development and language skills. Functional Numeracy provides basic math skills which comply with National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards. Both courses address skills at the kindergarten through fourth grade levels.
 Basic Literacy provides adults with reading strategies, literature instruction, and improves reading comprehension skills. Basic Numeracy provides comprehensive mathematics instruction and practice in the areas of numbers, operations, geometry and algebra. Both courses address skills at the fifth through eighth grade levels.
 Life and Work Skills provides instruction to the adult learner who needs to develop broader practical skills such as budgeting, health, pre-employment skills, and work maturity. This course addresses each of the 11 JTPA objectives for life and work skills. Wicat's new adult education curriculum is JTPA-certified.
 These adult education products will be marketed by Wicat and, through certain resellers and distributors of Wicat, to high schools, JTPA organizations, Private Industry Councils, community colleges, vocational education schools, corrections facilities and to industry.
