The two main assessment tools used at LARCC are the Canadian Language Benchmarks Assessment (CLBA) and the Canadian Language Benchmarks Placement Test (CLBPT), each of which assesses English skills from Pre-Benchmark to Benchmark (BM) 8.
It was used infrequently at LARCC in 2012-13, and only 10 individuals scored higher than BM 8 in at least one skill area.
LARCC staff and counsellors note that clients come with enormous skills, talents, potential, and dreams.
Clients served by LARCC from April 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013 come from diverse backgrounds.
Observably, there is a strong correlation between client priorities noted and the referrals provided by LARCC.
