This booklet offers an introduction to Communications and Math Employment Readiness Assessment (CAMERA), a series of standardized tests providing placement and diagnostic information about adult learners’ abilities to manage workplace communications and numeracy tasks.
The CAMERA system was developed by PTP Adult Learning and Employment Programs, a non-profit literacy organization based in Ontario. It uses real-life workplace documents and tasks to test and develop adult learners’ reading, document use, writing, and numeracy skills.
In this booklet, the authors provide information about the rationale for the system; its components, including tests, curriculum guidelines, and workbooks; training requirements; and costs. They have also included sample tests and contact information for PTP.
