BEST Literacy 2.0 Submitted for Review

CAL submitted BEST Literacy 2.0, its adult English test of Reading and Writing, for approval by the Department of Education Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE).

BEST Literacy 2.0 (BL 2.0) is an update of the earlier BEST Literacy assessment that conforms to the new National Reporting System standards and has new test items. The submission process involved researching the new BL 2.0 test forms with ten programs in eight states and studying the results with a team of 15 experts—and taking that study virtual once coronavirus arrived! CAL expects to hear if the test is approved in Spring 2021.
