Hi everyone,

Would folks be interested in a discussion with staff that worked on this

Here's the executive summary:

It's about 22 pages, but the first 13 give you a very good over view of
the project.  And if you want just a decent thumbnail, read the
Executive Summary and the Problem Statement at the beginning.

There is an overview available on the site as a pdf.  It appeared to be
about a forty page document.  Also you can go into the book and read and
print selected pages.  All of the above are at no cost.

charged to:
1. Review and evaluate the procedures for determining the performance
levels for the 1992 NALS and 
2. Recommend a set of performance levels for the 2003 National
Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL) that are appropriate and allow
comparisons between the two assessments.
