I have been thinking about this -- again -- recently.  Project RIRAL
(which participated in the NCSALL study) is re-organizing its
orientation to classes and placement assessments.  My questions: 
1 -- Should we use the ARCS recommendations to develop a placement
assessment into our ABE reading and Advanced ESL classes?  If so, any
suggestions and / or helpful hints?
2 -- RIRAL's instructors are participating in a series of workshops to
understand standards-based education and to align curriculum and
instruction with that approach to learning.  How does the ARCS see
itself supporting / fitting into standards-based instruction?
