Course Level

This course will focus on ways of formally and informally assessing the literacy of adult learners. Once learner needs have been identified, specific content ┬┐materials, tools, and instructional approaches can be used to assist adult learning in various settings. We will also look at appropriate assessments for English as a foreign language; adult English literacy skills needed for work, family, community and continuing education; the uses and issues of standardized tests; assumptions about testing, cultural bias and interpretation of formal tests; test preparation programs; and hiring discrimination caused by misuse of hiring tests. Finally, the course will also cover assessment of adult literacy using approaches such as applications and case studies; planning for work, family and community, including transition to post-secondary education career and vocational preparation; and use of formal testing for college admission, and other educational and vocational programs.
