The International Adult Literacy Survey: What Does It Really Measure?
Hamilton, Mary; Barton, David
International Review of Education, v46 n5 p377-389 Sep 2000
Evaluates the International Adult Literacy Survey (as reported in OECD 1997) from a New Literacy Studies perspective. Criticism of the survey includes charges that: it provides only a partial picture of literacy; culture is treated as bias; and the test items do not represent the real-life items as claimed. Contains 30 references. (PGS)
