Forwarded Message from National Center for Education Statistics (NCES):

May 14th is the registration deadline for the upcoming free NAAL data
training seminar that starts on Wednesday, June 25, 2008 through Friday,
June 27, 2008, in Washington, DC. Only a few people have signed up and we
still have capacity to accept between 10-12 more people.

The overall goal of the seminar is to equip participants with knowledge and
skills on the use of the National Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL) data
files and tools for substantive research as well as policy analyses. Topics
covered in the seminar include instruction on how to analyze NAAL data, with
hands-on practice, and help in designing and carrying out a research study.

NAAL data training seminar training is open to everyone including
researchers and planners, education practitioners, policymakers, and
association members, as well as faculty and advanced graduate students from
colleges and universities nationwide. There are no registration fees and
NCES is paying for the travel and lodging cost.

I encourage everyone to go to the following site to learn more about the
training and if you are interested, use the link within the site to
register. <http://ies.ed.gov/whatsnew/conferences/?id=314&cid=2>

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
