This book offers new perspectives on the understanding of adult basic skills and literacy. It identifies the critical information needs in this area and suggests ways of closing the information gap through case studies and large-scale surveys. The chapters give an overview of the different research and policy traditions in literacy, and address key technical issues in measurement and assessment. The implications and options for policy intervention are considered in light of changing conceptions of theory and measurement.
