The UNM Office of Assessment recently announced the Spring 2016 UNM Graduate Student Institutional Assessment. The Education and Skills (E&S) Online is a standardized cognitive assessment that measures workforce-readiness skills associated with literacy, numeracy, reading and problem solving in technology-rich environments.

In order to demonstrate UNM’s impact on students’ educational attainment and workforce-readiness, the four cognitive test modules of the Education and Skills (E&S) Online assessment will be administered to a sample of enrolled graduate students who received their undergraduate degree at UNM as well as to a sample of alumni who received both their undergraduate and graduate degrees at UNM. 

The E&S Online assessment can be completed online any time at any location on-campus and/or off-campus. It takes approximately 90 minutes to complete all four test modules. Graduate students and alumni will be given approximately four weeks to complete all four test modules. Individual-level results are benchmarked against the national and international results from the OECD Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC).

There are only 400 access codes available and with more than 3,500 graduate students and alumni eligible to take this assessment you will want reserve your spot today. There are some great incentives and prizes up for grabs. Interested participants must preregister by March 18 in order to be issued an access code.
