Webinaire « From “Learning to Read” to “Reading to Learn” »


25 Septembre 2013 - 17h00 - 26 Septembre 2013 - 16h59

Webinar – Wednesday September 25, 2013 – 1 pm (EDT), featuring Manuel Cardoso Fernandez, Program Specialist, Learning Outcomes Section, UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS)

This webinar will focus on how reading components for the Literacy Assessment and Monitoring Programme (LAMP) were developed independently (rather than translated) for different languages and scripts (Arabic, Cyrillic, and Roman) and on how their results inform literacy policy.

The Literacy Assessment and Monitoring Programme (LAMP) is a household-based assessment of the reading and numeracy skills of adults (15 years or older). Initially conceived as an adaptation of IALS and ALL, it shares many traits with PIAAC. LAMP’s upcoming international report is based on large nationwide samples from Jordan, Mongolia, Palestine and Paraguay. Field tests were conducted in Afghanistan, El Salvador, Morocco, Niger, and Viet Nam, as well as among Central African Republic refugees in Chad. LAMP was also the first cross-regional study on Reading Components.
