Abstract : The Literacy Assessment Battery (LAB) is a battery of tests designed to provide information about people's auding and reading skills. It provides information about how well an individual or a group auds or reads in comparison to the young adult population used to norm the LAB. The LAB was developed to be used with youth and adult populations at or above 10 years of ages. Results suggest that the LAB may be particularly useful in middle and secondary school remedial literacy programs and in developmental studies programs in community colleges. (Author)
