Regmi, Kapil Dev; Andema, Samuel; Asselin, Marlene – International Review of Education, 2020
The global movement to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations' 2030 Agenda rests on strengthening international connections and cooperation.

Bilagher, Moritz; Kaushik, Amit – International Review of Education, 2020
Accelerated learning programmes (ALPs) provide a fast-track second-chance opportunity to complete formal education, enabling disadvantaged children and youth to catch up with their peers. In 2005, after a preliminary pilot phase, the Government of Iraq, in partnership with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) implemented an ALP initially in…

Danka, István – International Review of Education, 2020
In the first decade of the 21st century, distance learning (usually subject to course fees and resulting in formal certification) was complemented by free-of-charge open learning courses with unlimited numbers of participants and no final certificate. Termed "massive open online courses" (MOOCs), these soon fell into different…

Among the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) launched in 2015, the fourth goal (SDG 4) is dedicated to education, and one of the ten targets within that goal specifically addresses adult literacy and numeracy skills.

Reder, Stephen; Gauly, Britta; Lechner, Clemens – International Review of Education, 2020
"Practice engagement theory" (PET) posits that individuals' literacy proficiencies develop as a by-product of their engagement in everyday reading and writing practices and, reciprocally, that literacy proficiencies affect levels of engagement in reading and writing practices. This suggests that literacy training which increases…

Tout, Dave – International Review of Education, 2020
Historically, numeracy has tended to be forgotten and overlooked in adult education, especially compared to literacy. Yet evidence exists to show that numeracy should be made a priority, and that building the foundational numeracy skills of young people and adults is vital for their well-being in work and life in the 21st century. In the past…

Grek, Sotiria – International Review of Education, 2020
Through their collaborative practices of quantification and standardisation in large-scale comparative literacy and numeracy surveys, international organisations (IOs) are both constituting new realities and being reconstituted themselves. This article aims to substantiate how the dominance of global measurement regimes has had profound…

Curdt, Wiebke; Schreiber-Barsch, Silke – International Review of Education, 2020
In the past decade, the numeracy component in adult basic education has gained scholarly attention. The issue has been addressed by large-scale assessments of adults' skills and intergovernmental policy agendas, but also by qualitative research into numeracy from the perspective of social practice theory. However, some aspects of numeracy are…

Daniels, Doria – International Review of Education, 2020
Adult education and training (AET) was always a neglected part of South African education. In the mid-1990s, the South African government sought to change this by introducing a number of policies that prepared the way for adult basic education (ABET) to become part of the formal educational system, and to attain its official status as a formally…

Lissitsa, Sabina; Chachashvili-Bolotin, Svetlana – International Review of Education, 2020
Job autonomy -- employees' freedom to schedule and organise their work independently according to their own experience and preferences -- is a major factor in job satisfaction. However, it is not granted to many employees in Israel, and the authors of this article were interested in the reasons for this. Based on data from the Programme for the…

Heilmann, Lisanne – International Review of Education, 2020
International large-scale assessments like the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competences (PIAAC) assess literacy and numeracy proficiency as abstract competences, assuming they are cognitive skills and therefore objectively and universally measurable. However, research into how people's lives are affected by notions of…

Low literacy among adolescents and adults worldwide remains a serious problem, even in economically developed countries. The consequences of low reading proficiency levels can be harmful in many ways for both the individuals concerned and their communities in terms of health, political, social and economic outcomes. While large-scale international…
