Share Article

The United States Department of Education announced that the Wonderlic General Assessment of Instructional Needs (GAIN)®, an assessment that measures student advances in educational functioning levels (EFLs), is currently approved for use by Adult Basic Education programs funded through the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education, as well as by Workforce Investment Act Title I programs funded through the U.S. Department of Labor.

The streamlined testing process and engaging student report will continue to motivate students to achieve educational functioning levels, while the online student data management system will continue to facilitate NRS reporting demands.

“The news of GAIN’s current approval through June 30, 2015 is welcome news to thousands of GAIN users in adult basic education, corrections education, and workforce development programs across the nation,” said Bill Walker, the National Manager of Wonderlic Education Sales. “The streamlined testing process and engaging student report will continue to motivate students to achieve educational functioning levels, while the online student data management system will continue to facilitate NRS reporting demands for administrative personnel.”

“Wonderlic will continue working with OVAE to secure additional approval for the GAIN,” noted Charlie Wonderlic, CEO. “We intend to continue to build a strong evidentiary case addressing the NRS Criteria to demonstrate that the GAIN should be approved beyond June 2015.”

GAIN is a powerful, all-in-one basic skills numeracy and literacy test that measures English, reading and math competencies in adults and youth. It’s the superior choice for Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs, literacy centers, Workforce Development programs, remedial training, GED programs and more.
