Evaluation – Level 2 and Literacy


Dear Trainers
Firstly, thank you for your contributions so far to this site - I always find them worth while.

I'm looking for some techniques on evaluating the learning at a training event where delegates may have some literacy issues - I don't see a written test as the fairest way? Any suggestions?
so far I have:
Performance Tests
Create a board game based on learning
Group Tests
Take home tests
Pair work / presentation

would appreciate any more useful suggestions! thanks in advance,

Kind regards,

Liam Carey

  1. Move on!
    No that’s not a slur. The Move On! campaign from the skills for life team have a whole range of material available for testing literacy issues and you could steal many of their ideas to get your training working.

    The material is all available free from their website and in any quantity you like. So you could order some of their material, use it to design your own learning aids.

    But you could also offer support and advice based around the freely available and no-cost skills for life training to delegates who are struggling in these areas.

    In West Yorkshire (where I’m based) over 26% of adults have basic literacy problems, and only about 30% have English to a level 2 standard (approx. equivalent to a C Grade in GCSE English). So these folk are not a minority here in West Yorkshire (nor anywhere else for that matter).

    Current agenda is very much aligned to giving folks with issues in these areas as much support as possible to overcome them and training is available free not just in colleges but also at work with employer support.

    So you could kill two birds with one stone if you felt like it – otherwise at least you’ll discover some useful stuff for making your own training more effective.
