Test Your Literacy

Keywords: link, Canada

In an earlier post, I talked about prose literacy and how it was being defined in order to derive an alarming statistic about the state of literacy in Canada.

I thought that some of you might like to take the test yourself.  You may do so at the following website:

http://www.ccl-cca.ca/CCL/Reports/LiteracySelfAssessment/

My main disappointment regarding this test was that it didn't tell me what questions I got wrong.  I was very confident in almost all of my answers, but I only got 100% in one small sub category "use of pattern and relationships -> calculate -> formulae".

It would be nice if the way the tests were scored was transparent and available online.  Perhaps the information is available on request.

If anybody's interested, I scored a level 4 in prose literacy.  In document literacy, I scored in level 3, and in numeracy, I scored in level 5.

I was supplied with a bewildering array of results from numerous sub-categories, which must have been a labour intensive undertaking to design and program.  I have my doubts about how much these tiny slices of meaning can possibly tell me about myself and my abilities.  But over all I'm sure the test gives at least a rough idea of a person's literacy level.

Take the test yourself and let me know what you think.
