To get the best out of the Adult Literacy and Numeracy Assessment Tool, learners need to be primed with information about the purpose of the assessment, the assessment tool environment and the learner result information they will see at the end of the assessment. This webinar will discuss some key messages that we can give learners before they sit an adaptive assessment.
