Measures of Success: Workplace Literacy and Essential Skills Initiatives – Presentation at the Summer Institute 2012 (2012)

This presentation outlines the early results from Measures of Success (MOS), a research project designed to develop an evaluation model to measure the long-term outcomes of workplace Literacy and Essential Skills (LES) initiatives in Manitoba and Nova Scotia. The project builds on a model developed in New Zealand, modified to the Canadian context.

The authors include information on what was being measured by the project and how it was being measured, including the context of both individuals and workplaces. They describe the design of the project as a mixture of qualitative and quantitative research, including interviews, surveys, and analysis of documents.

The project was funded by the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills (OLES), Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), and managed by The Centre for Literacy. The Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC) was hired to run the project.

The presentation was made during the centre’s Summer Institute 2012, which was held in Montreal, Quebec, in June of that year. The Centre for Literacy supports best practices and informed policy development in Literacy and Essential Skills by creating bridges between research, policy, and practice.
