If I understood this correctly, Marie, it is a discussion on a point that
Tom Sticht brought up a long time ago -- about response rates (80% vs 60% in
this case) and the correlation to proficiency levels.  I think this is truly
important to understand because of the implications of changing the
proficiency levels and level descriptors.  I'm curious to see how states'
performance and targets may be affected as a result of the committee's
recommendations.  

I would be in favor of an online discussion.

Thanks! Varshna.
