Workplace Literacy Assessment Tools (1989)

One of the most important elements in setting up a workplace basic skills program is the assessment of the individual employee. Because this field is still evolving, research on different “assessment instruments” used in these programs is sketchy. However, evaluating the appropriateness of existing literacy instruments for use in workplace basic skills programs may provide some insight into further test development strategies.

This document is a technical review of three such instruments: the Canadian Adult Achievement Test (CAAT); Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE), Forms 5 and 6; and The Gates-MacGinitie Reading Tests (GMRT), Canadian Edition. Each test was reviewed for content, development, and usability.
