Hello everyone,
I hope this email finds you intrigued and full of questions for our
guests this week.  Please welcome Judy Koenig and Stuart Elliot from the
National Academy of Sciences, and the Committee Members who were
involved in the Performance Levels for Adults project.  It is a pleasure
to have everyone here this week.  
I'm going to start us right off by asking our guests to respond to the
first item that appeared in the "suggested preparations" section of the
announcement, which I've copied below:
            Questions concerning the lowest and the highest categories
the literacy levels; specifically, questions concerning the difference
between the Non-Literacy in English and Below Basic categories, and
comparing the percentages of folks falling within these categories
between the 1992 survey and the 2003 survey;
I know that the 2003 survey included additional components to try to
gauge the lower ESOL levels, so I'm interested in hearing about that.
I'm also interested in hearing about the Non-Literacy versus Below Basic
