    Abstract

    The subject matter of this paper is of tremendous importance to educators across the spectrum. Determining literacy levels has proven difficult for policy-makers and service providers alike for decades. The difficulty is further evidenced in the complex task of measuring learning outcomes among participants in literacy programmes. This paper, which reveals the inadequacy of current success indicators, highlights the importance of continuing to press for more comprehensive indicators -- indicators that acknowledge the importance of enhanced quality of life for learners as valid and perhaps crucial in determining the success of literacy interventions.
