Common Assessment for the OALCF Goal Paths Resource Package - Literacy Northwest

The Common Assessment for the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF) Paths (CA-OALCF) Resource Package provides Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) service providers with tools and information needed to

  • adapt/develop an assessment strategy that describes what tools are used for the purpose (initial, ongoing, exit), goal path and when an assessment is done
  • adapt/develop a process used for assessment results to inform overall agency targets
  • support agency efforts to fully implement the OALCF
  • help ensure integrity and accurate assessment results that support appropriate learner referrals
  • support efficient and effective program planning and delivery
  • help the smooth transition of learners' goal completions

Through the 2013-2014 Service Delivery Network Development Fund project, the following tools/resources were developed
