Literacy Action Network Summer Institute


  • St. Cloud, MN

Kyo Sin Kang and Emily Pawlowski (AIR) will be presenting “Who are the U.S. Low-Skilled Workforce: Key findings from the Program for International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC)".

PIAAC is a large-scale assessment of adults’ cognitive and workplace skills. This presentation is focused on describing PIAAC results on low-skilled adults and exploring relationships between the foundation skills and several socio-economic priorities, including skills required for successful participation in the 21st-century global workforce.  A demonstration of an online assessment tool aligned with PIAAC that could be used to assess individual skills will also be provided.
