Understanding the Literacy/Numeracy Measure

Understanding the Literacy/Numeracy Measure

As educators, we place great value on assessing our students' skills and abilities. We take pride in knowing our students have gained knowledge in our classroom that they will apply in their careers and lives.

In this module we will explore the literacy and numeracy measure associated with the Workforce Investment Act (WIA).

By the end of this module, you should be able to:

  1. Define the WIA literacy and numeracy measure;
  2. Identify basic skill requirements in reading and math; and
  3. Explain how students will be measured as they increase their
    Educational Functioning Level (EFL) in reading and math.
