This first OECD Skills Outlook presents the initial results of the Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC), which evaluates the skills of adults in 24 countries. It provides insights into the availability of some of the key skills and how they are used at work and at home. A major component is the direct assessment of key information-processing skills: literacy, numeracy and problem solving in the context of technology-rich environments.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, May 9, 4:42 AM

"Another interesting common-core note, for those of you who are so into the weeds on this stuff that you know about Appendix B of the Common Core State Standards. That's the list of texts that the standards' authors suggest as examples of readings in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama that are appropriately complex at each grade level. Renaissance Learning's report shows that there has been an increase—albeit small—in the reading of those texts. Although the standards' authors didn't intend those lists as "assigned reading" lists, they appear to be having an effect on what teachers suggest to their students."
