7 April 2005

By Niki Murray

Associate Professor Frank Sligo, Ms Niki Culligan, and Ms Beth Houston of the Department of Communication and Journalism have been awarded a further contract from the Ministry of Education for a summary of the detailed analysis of the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS) data from 1996. This summary is to be used for upcoming communications purposes of the Ministry.


The summary will draw together the key findings of a report that looked at the demographic characteristics of adults with foundation learning needs, particularly those features that are most closely associated with lower levels of literacy. The publication of these findings is aimed at tertiary providers, employers, management and practitioners and will seek to provide recommendations on how these groups can use this data to respond to their communities.
