This was brought to my attention by Christine Pinsent-Johnson.  

There is no information that MTCU is examining or looking at this test option, but service providers might want to check it out.


"SARA is anew assessment being developed by Educational Testing Services (ETS). It is hooked into PIAAC et al. and covers the "below Level 1"  category using a set of six skills. It is now undergoing field trials in programs. Once this is available, MTCU will have the tools needed to revive Education and Skills Online for those working at a Grade 8 reading level or above and use SARA for below Grade 8 reading."
