Measures of Success: Workplace Literacy and Essential Skills Initiatives – Panel Report from the Summer Institute 2010 (2010)

This presentation offers an introduction to 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 and applied to 20 selected workplace LES initiatives in Manitoba and Nova Scotia.

The authors explain that the overall goal is to develop and test an evaluation model to measure the long-term impacts of workplace LES initiatives on individuals, workplaces, companies, and local community. The impacts would be measured from the perspectives of learners, co-workers, supervisors, employers, and union representatives.

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, which supports best practices and informed policy development in LES by building links between research, policy, and practice.

The presentation was part of the agenda for the centre’s Summer Institute 2010, held in Montreal, Quebec, in June of that year.
