Executive Summary

This project was commissioned by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) on behalf of the Canadian Council of Directors of Apprenticeship (CCDA) to conduct an analysis of the reading demands of the Red Seal exam questions for the Construction Electrician and Motor Vehicle Body Repairer trades. The objective of the project was to determine the current reading competency levels of English and French Red Seal examination questions, as selected by HRSDC, to ensure consistency in the development of Red Seal examinations over time.
The results of the analysis in terms of Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) and Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens (NCLC) show that the test questions, for both Construction Electrician and Motor Vehicle Body Repairer trades, generally fall in the CLB 6-9 range.
