New Network Brief on Digital Skills Frameworks and Assessment

The CREATE Adult Skills Network (the Network) research teams are developing technology-supported learning and assessment tools and implementing curricula to help adult learners build digital skills. Throughout this work, each team has noted the importance of gaining a better understanding of the digital skills learners need to fully participate in the research projects. To that end, this Network Brief will introduce several widely used and relevant digital literacy frameworks and assessment strategies used in adult education.

The resources we discuss in this brief can help adult education instructors and researchers understand the digital skills of adult learners.
