Hi Larry and everyone,
 
I wonder if anyone has read/used the following document:
 
Developing Performance Assessments for Adult Literacy Learners:  A
Summary
http://www.nrsweb.org/reports/PerformanceAssessments.pdf
 
and can comment on it for us.
 
 
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!
