Hi folks,
 
I'm pleased to announce that next week, we have the pleasure of hosting
Mr. Mark Kutner, from the American Institutes of Research, Director of
the National Assessments of Adult Literacy.  Please read on for more
details.
 
March 7 - 11
 
Topic:  Exploring the National Assessments of Adult Literacy (NAAL)
 
Guest:  Mark Kutner, Program Director, Workforce Research and Analysis,
and Director of the NAAL, American Institutes of Research
 
Mr. Kutner is interested in engaging with your questions and discussion
on areas including:
 
*	General Questions about the assessment and what literacy skills
it measures 
*	Analysis and reporting plans and schedule 
*	Types of data and information that will be available

NALS 
 
Recommended preparations for this discussion:  
The web address for the NAAL homepage is:

The homepage has some good informational sections - I suggest you click
on Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom of the left toolbar.  This
section (FAQs) 
has areas of interest including how the assessment was developed, and
state data and comparisons.
 
Looking forward to seeing you all next week!
