Numeracy Research: Comparative analysis - Interview with Katherine Clarke-Nolan, Policy analyst, OLES [Audio – 0:55]

This is the third in an eight-part podcast series, produced by the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills (OLES) in Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), focusing on research on numeracy that is part of the Essential Skills Research Project undertaken to improve the current measurement framework for those skills.

Here, Katherine Clarke-Nolan, a policy analyst with OLES, explains the development of a comparative analysis of the definitions and components of numeracy, used within the five international assessments that were chosen for study in the literature review phase of the project.

The comparative analysis was based on the definitions and components of numeracy; the definitions and components of numerate behaviour; the concepts included in each facet; and the assessment approaches proposed.
