Literacy skills for the knowledge society : further results from the International Adult Literacy Survey by International Adult Literacy Survey( Book )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 380 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
