International Survey of Reading Skills
2004 - 2005
The International Survey of Reading Skills (ISRS) was designed to characterize the reading profiles and learning needs of demographically different groups of low skilled Canadian adults by administering a battery of clinical reading tests to a sample of adults who previously had participated in the 2003 International Adult Literacy and Skills Survey (IALSS). The survey aims to help educators tailor the content and modalities of their instructions to the needs of low skilled adults.
