Learning a living first results of the Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )
14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on the Adult Literacy and Life Skills survey conducted in Bermuda, Canada, Italy, Mexico (Nuevo Leon), Norway, and the United States of America in 2003 and 2004, this book presents an initial set of findings that shed new light on the twin processes of skill gain and loss. The book opens with an explanation of the goals and conceptual approach of the survey and comparative profiles of adult skills in participating countries. It then looks at the relationship between education and skills and adult learning and skills. Additional chapters compare the employability of younger and older populations in participating countries, skills and economic outcomes, skills and information and communications technologies, skills and immigration, the effects of parental education on skills, and the effect of skills on health

Literacy in the information age : final report of the International Adult Literacy Survey by International Adult Literacy Survey( Book )
17 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Literacy in the Information Age, the final report from the International Adult Literacy Survey, presents evidence on the nature and magnitude of the literacy gaps faced by OECD countries. It offers new insights into the factors that influence the development of adult skills in various settings - at home, at work and across the 20 countries for which comparable household assessment results are included. Findings point to large differences in the average level and population distribution of literacy skills both within and between countries. Low literacy skills are evident among all adult groups in significant - albeit varying - proportions. Literacy proficiency varies considerably according to home background factors and educational attainment in most of the countries surveyed. However, the relationship between literacy skills and educational attainment is complex. Many adults have managed to attain high levels of literacy proficiency despite a low level of education; conversely, some have low literacy skills despite a high level of education. These differences matter both economically and socially: literacy affects, inter alia, labour quality and flexibility, employment, training opportunities, income from work and wider participation in civic society. Improving the literacy skills of the population remains a large challenge for policy makers. The results suggest that high-quality foundation learning in schools is important but insufficient as a sole means to that end. Policies directed at the workplace and family settings are also needed. The employers' role in promoting and rewarding literacy skills is particularly important for skills development
Literacy skills for the knowledge society : further results from the International Adult Literacy Survey by International Adult Literacy Survey( Book )
7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS) started out with two underlying goals: to develop measures and scales that would permit useful comparisons of literacy performance among people with a wide range of ability, and to describe and compare the demonstrated literacy skills of people from different countries. This report extends the analysis initially presented in a 1995 publication that reported results of the first IALS for seven countries (Canada, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, and the United States). Data from five additional countries are included (Belgium, Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Ireland) and results of new studies and analyses of the IALS data set are presented. The introduction reviews key findings and the study's conceptual framework and definitions of literacy employed. Chapter 1 outlines the overall levels of proficiency as well as the distributions of literacy in each country. Chapter 2 offers new evidence concerning the economic and wider social benefits of literacy, including contributions of literacy to productivity and earnings, quality of life, health, volunteerism, and returns to human capital. Chapter 3 examines the relationships between literacy and a range of human characteristics such as home background, age, and gender, and explores how the socio-economic differences observed relate to interactions within families, schools, and the workplace. The final chapter analyzes adults' readiness to learn in a variety of settings, both formal and informal. Annexes include the survey's definitions of literacy performance on five levels and three scales, sample tasks illustrating types of materials used in the literacy tests, a description of how the survey was conducted in each country, detailed statistical tables, and a list of project participants
