Skills and Practices in Long-term Adult Literacy Development

  1. 1. Skills and Practices in Long-term Adult Literacy Development: Evidence from PIAAC and the Longitudinal Study of Adult Learning Stephen Reder Portland State University
  2. 2. Stephen Reder - Portland State University Practice Engagement Theory • PIAAC includes measures of both proficiencies (assessed literacy, numeracy, and problem-solving skills) and self-reported uses of reading, writing, numeracy and ICT skills, which we will call practices here • PIAAC data suggest that both proficiencies and practices are fundamental to economic and social well-being • Key question: How do proficiency and practices develop over time in adult life? • My initial formulation of Practice Engagement Theory proposed that literacy practices and proficiencies mutually interact and facilitate each other’s growth over time • The original evidence base for this came from ethnographic studies of literacy in diverse settings and contexts • A recently completed longitudinal study in the U.S. provides an opportunity to look at the adult literacy development process more closely and elaborate Practice Engagement Theory
  3. 3. Stephen Reder - Portland State University Longitudinal Study of Adult Learning • Long-term panel study of low-education adults who participate in adult education programs & those who do not participate (6 sweeps 1998 – 2006) • Sample of ~1,000 representative of local rather than national target population: early school leavers, age 18-44, proficient not necessarily native English speakers • Periodic in-home interviews and repeated literacy assessments encompassing both standardized TALS literacy proficiency assessments and scaled measures of engagement in everyday literacy practices • Examines program participation & other learning activities, changes in literacy skills and practices over time, and social and economic changes (e.g., annual income reported in administrative data)

  18. 18. Stephen Reder - Portland State University The Long-Term Impact of Participation in Skills Programs • Practice engagement theory suggests that the impact of skills programs may take time to fully develop • The typical short-term evaluation of programs may miss much of their eventual impact • Can see this clearly in LSAL data that followed participants and nonparticipants over long periods of time
  19. 19. Stephen Reder - Portland State University Wages of Skills Program Participants and Nonparticipants
  20. 20. Stephen Reder - Portland State University Propensity Score Matching • One of three analytical methods used to deal with selection bias in comparisons of program participants and nonparticipants • Compares the 2007 wages of participants and nonparticipants matched on their likelihood of participating based on observed pre-participation characteristics: – Age Gender Race/Ethnicity Education – Immigration status 1997 wages – Learning disabilities Parents’ education • Large difference between matched participants’ and nonparticipants’ 2007 incomes if participation defined as 100 or more hours of program attendance • No statistically significant difference if participation defined as less than 100 hours of attendance
  21. 21. Stephen Reder - Portland State University Income Growth in Propensity Score-Matched Participants (100+ hours) & Nonparticipants
  22. 22. Stephen Reder - Portland State University Skills and Practices in PIAAC • Many of these findings from LSAL are consistent with PIAAC data • For example, earnings in PIAAC are predicted by both literacy skills and practices in the workplace • This PIAAC earnings result holds with controls on education, occupation, work experience and demographics
  23. 23. Stephen Reder - Portland State University Conclusions & Implications • This research expands the theoretical framework of Practice Engagement Theory • The results provide evidence of ongoing, reciprocal influences between literacy skills and literacy practices • Key implication for programs: design programs to foster engagement in literacy practices • Key implication for policy: adult literacy programs have a long-term impact on earnings that offers excellent returns on investment • Key implication for research & development: improve measures of literacy practices
