Adult students at the earliest stages of math instruction (numeracy level) need curriculum and instruction tailored to their educational needs. For a variety of reasons, not a lot of information is available about how many students need this level of instruction or what resources are available to them.

The SABES Mathematics and Adult Numeracy C&I PD Center is conducting a survey to help teachers and programs estimate the number of students they see at this level (CCRSAE math level A, GLE K–1) each year. This data will be used as a starting point for a multiyear project to find ways to best support programs and teachers working with numeracy-level students. Come learn more about this project and ask questions about the survey!


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • All adult education teachers and directors

This 30-minute webinar will explain and answer questions about the Numeracy Indicator Survey, which was designed to help estimate the number of adult education students in Massachusetts in need of numeracy-level math instruction (CCRSAE level A, GLE K–1). This is an important first step in helping the SABES Mathematics and Adult Numeracy C&I PD Center identify ways to support programs in meeting the educational needs of these students.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion of this professional development activity/course, you will be able to:

  • Identify numeracy level math content
  • Respond to a survey to help us count the number of students in need of numeracy level math instruction in MA
  • Learn about the ongoing work SABES Mathematics and Adult Numeracy C&I PD Center is doing in this area
