From CASAS to Work Keys Assessments
Collection: Research Materials
The goal of the CASAS' Work Keys study was to form a comprehensive assessment system that can be utilized by a variety of agencies, educational institutions, business and industry, and workforce development centers. By analyzing the data they obtained from reading and mathematical assessments, researchers involved in the project were able to investigate the relationship and provide linkages between the two assessment systems.
The study brings together two large-scale assessment systems, each of which provides important information about people: the assessment component of CASAS' Workforce Learning Systems which is designed to measure basic literacy skills within an employment context, and the assessment component of the Work Keys system which is designed to assess employability skills.
