Also, the info bulletin Enhancing Performance Through Accountability http://www.nrsweb.org/nrsBrochureFinal.pdf notes that there are a few projects going on, one of which is developing State Report Cards. I remember that this was happening here in Massachusetts a year or two ago. Can anyone comment on their State Report Card? What is that like? Is it helpful? Larry, can you comment on any trends you have seen, or what the experience has been like having states develop report cards? Have you found that helpful for NRS purposes? Do you find that that aids the connection between the NRS and what is happening locally? Finally, NRS On-Line (http://www.nrs.detya.gov.au/default.htm) has some cool resources - I got a lot out of reading the Case Studies - but I'm stumped by one thing: Larry - it seems that all the case studies are from Australia - can you comment on that for us? I know that Aussie has a great history and reputation of excellent adult education work, but I was not aware that some of the NRS development work happened there (?). Thanks! marie cora Assessment List Moderator
