Literacy in Saskatchewan - Implications of Findings from IALSS 2003 (2006)

A Powerpoint Presentation

The International Adult Literacy and Skills Survey (IALSS) offers a summary of how well adults use literacy skills in daily activities at home, at work, and in the community.

In 2003, for the first time, the IALSS measured literacy proficiency among all provinces and territories in Canada. This PowerPoint presentation offers an analysis of the survey’s implications, specifically for Saskatchewan.

Among the points discussed in the presentation are the level of literacy proficiency in Saskatchewan in comparison with the rest of Canada; the effect of age and education on literacy and numeracy performance; the proficiency of urban Aboriginal people in Saskatchewan; and the demographic characteristics of people with low literacy proficiency, including their geographic location in Saskatchewan.

The presentation includes numerous charts, graphs and maps, accompanied by notes to explain and analyze the material further.
