We are just a few short months from the official data release for the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) on October 8th, 2013. PIAAC is a study that assesses key cognitive and workplace skills in twenty-four participating countries and regions, including the United States. PIAAC provides a new and rich international comparison of the adult workforce that will enable the United States to better understand its global competitiveness and benchmark how well education and training systems are meeting emerging skill demand.
We believe that this data – and other PIAAC tools – will be of great interest to you. To learn more about PIAAC and what it can offer, please visit the NCES website.
