CASAS Assessments Approved for WIOA/NRS
CASAS is proud to have a wide variety of assessments approved for Measuring Educational Gains (MSGs) for Workforce Innovations Opportunity Act (WIOA) funded agencies. These tests also meet the requirements for reporting in the National Reporting System (NRS) for Adult Education for both ABE and ESL programs.
Note: Locator and Appraisal tests – used to determine the correct pre-test level – do not require approval. Locator/appraisal test results are not used for NRS reporting.
