The Case for Measuring Adults' Numeracy Practices
Coben, Diana; Alkema, Anne
Journal of Research and Practice for Adult Literacy, Secondary, and Basic Education, v6 n1 p20-32 Spr 2017
In this article, we make the case for the development of a numeracy practices measure in the light of a review of relevant research and extant measures. We argue that a numeracy practices measure would acknowledge and validate adult learners' practice gains and inform teaching geared to their circumstances, needs and interests.
