Emily Pawlowski (AIR) will be presenting on "Why Numeracy Matters: A Closer Look at What PIAAC Tells us About Adult Workforce Success." This session will provide an introduction to PIAAC results, focusing on how adults in the U.S. performed on this international numeracy skills assessment, how those results compare with their peers in other countries, and the demographic characteristics of adults in the U.S. with low numeracy skills. There will be a closer look at which industries have the highest concentrations of low-skilled workers to help identify likely employers to partner with in building career pathways and workplace education programs. Finally, Emily will go over the PIAAC numeracy framework in order to see if we are building the numeracy skills adults need to succeed in the workforce.
