This is one of the six cases on assessment practices and the changing nature of work, undertaken by the Centre for Work and Learning (CWL), a research centre of the Institute for Adult Learning. Each of the six cases highlights different aspects of innovative approaches to assessment, their possibilities and the challenges involved in assessment for, through and at work. Each case suggests different strategies, tasks and/or practices in assessment that can enable meaningful and engaged learning. The Business Performance and Skills Survey (BPSS) is a study of skills utilisation from the perspective of the commercial establishment. The analyses and findings from this study will provide relevant and timely data on skills demand and skills utilisation at the establishment level for tracking and diagnostic purposes as well as to inform skills policies at the sectoral level.
