Developing a Broad Assessment for Financial Literacy

Professor Peter Davies (School of Education) and Dr Lindsey Appleyard (CHASM, School of Social Policy) ran a two day workshop at the School of Education on 9-10 November 2012 at the University of Birmingham to develop a framework and appropriate assessment tools for assessing financial literacy at secondary school level within an international context. The workshop was attended by academics with expertise in financial education from the US and Europe, a specialist provider of professional financial education and secondary school teachers. The assessment developed from the workshop is currently being trialled in Europe and the US to explore the level of financial literacy within a school context to compare outcomes across different countries.
