I am curious which CASAS assessments series consortiums are using for workforce education?  Is it always the Employability Series?  Or have the Lifeskills or Life and Work series been used?

I asked participants from the WILMA (Workforce Initiative for a Leadership and Mentoring Alliance) project which of the CASAS tests they used and got a range of responses.  Some use the Lifeskills/Life and Work and others use the Employability series.  Most workforce education instructors use the series of tests most widely used in their center-based ABE classrooms and adhere to the testing guidelines recommended by their consortia.
