Getting ready for PIAAC 5
Date posted: October 7, 2013
The International and pan-Canadian reports from PIAAC will be released tomorrow.
The pan-Canadian report will look at Canada’s results in an international context and will include information for Canada such as human capital in Canada , changes in literacy and numeracy between 2003 and 2011, and Canada’s results in the context of Aboriginal populations, recent immigrants, and official language minority communities. More reports are scheduled for release in 2014 and 2015.
Still wondering what to expect from PIAAC? Here’s a slide presentation from William Thorn of OECD that outlines what we can expect tomorrow and in the years to come.
There are two new websites on PIAAC from a Canadian perspective:
PIAAC in Canada – This website from the Council of Ministers of Education Canada has a good FAQ page http://www.cmec.ca/476/Pan-Canadian-Report/FAQ/index.html with information on the who, what, when, why and how of PIAAC in Canada.
