 Good Morning:  I wish to congratulate the REEP creators!  Brooklyn Public
Library Literacy Program moved to writing in the early 90's.  In an effort
to codify students' gains and with a grant from the then Lila Wallace
foundation we created a writing rubric for non-reading Adults - up to about
a fifth grade reading level.  We have been using this successfully for
years.  But because it was not normed we couldn't use it to show gain in an
NRS environment.  

I have downloaded your article and handed it off to the folks at the New
York State Education Dept.  I found this all very exciting.
