The purpose of this document is to report on the findings from a national survey on student assessment in adult basic education. This report is one of several outcomes from a national project entitled Assessment Practices in Adult Basic Education. This project will also produce an edited book on assessment practices and three videos.
This project was sponsored by the Centre for Education and Work (CEW) in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The CEW gratefully acknowledges the financial support provided by the National Literacy Secretariat, Department of Human Resources and Social Development Canada for funding this project.
We would like to acknowledge the contributions of the advisory committee, who helped to form the survey framework and questions:
