PIAAC Survey results: Next steps

You may recall that about a year ago, the results of the PIAAC were released. If you are new to the adult literacy and numeracy world, you may have missed this event. The PIAAC represented an international effort to assess adults' literacy and numeracy levels. PIAAC is the acronym for the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies. The work based on those results included reshaping federal job training programs and initiatives in adult education. Documents and research continue to be disseminated regarding the PIAAC results.
