What are adult literacy skills?
Adult literacy skills encompass reading, writing, listening, and speaking knowledge necessary to live, work, and prosper in a community. Literacy levels should be determined early to match learners with the right instructional resources and activities for their age, grade level, and overall abilities. The most common leveling measurements for K–12 are Guided Reading, Lexile Scores, and the Developmental Reading Assessment. Adult educators use the latter to measure basic and advanced literacy skills.
