Collective List of Assessment Tools (2012)

The Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF) is the new cornerstone of Employment Ontario’s Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) program. With its introduction, LBS practitioners wondered if and how existing assessment tools fit within the OALCF.

The purpose of this document is to create a chart that determines where assessment tools fit within an “assessment matrix.” The tools include both those preapproved under OALCF guidelines and those submitted by LBS programs and agencies.

Each tool was analyzed, based on the goal path and whether it could be used for intake, ongoing, or exit assessment. The tools were then rated as either high or low, based on 13 questions set out in a document released by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities in March 2011. The questions dealt with matters like ease of access; cost of training; and time required to administer the assessment tool.

All tools included in this document received a high rating because they met most of the criteria.

The author notes that this resource has not been validated in any official manner. It is a collection of assessment resources that practitioners can consider when integrating the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF).
