Fall Institute 2011: IALS - Its Meaning and Impact for Policy and Practice

This Institute explored the story of the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS) and its successors in Canada and other countries. It traced the shift from “literacy” to “skills” to “competencies”, and explored evolving methodology and the impacts of the international literacy assessments over two decades on policy and practice.
