Numeracy Research: Next steps - Interview with Katherine Clarke-Nolan, Policy analyst, OLES [Audio – 1:11] (2011)

This audio file is the last of an eight-part podcast series produced by the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills (OLES), Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), describing a research project that will help to update the numeracy element of the Essential Skills framework.

Here, OLES policy analyst Katherine Clarke-Nolan discusses the next steps after the completion of the numeracy research project.

Revised definitions are being validated with a consultant and a team of experts in the field. As well, three proposed complexity factors of numeracy will be vetted in the consultation with the Essential Skills experts. If they are considered accurate and useful, the project will move to assigning and validating levels to the scales.

It is expected that the whole process will likely take several years.

The podcast series is hosted by Véronique Cadieux.
