This book is the proceedings from the NZCER conference, Assessing Adult Learning: Literacy and Numeracy Competencies, held in Wellington in August 2010. The day was focused on assessment in literacy and numeracy, at individual, organisational, national and international levels. It also explored the role of the new national assessment tool for adult learners, which was made available earlier in 2010.
The day explored the impact of assessment on learners and the particular issues for Mäori learners. It brought together research, policy and practice, and people from across the tertiary and workplace learning sectors.
The proceedings contain both formal papers presented at the conference and less formal transcripts from presentations and panel discussions on the day.
