Welcome to LINCS Resource Collection News!

Each month, we will feature one of the three LINCS Resource
Collections-Basic Skills, Program Management, and Workforce
Competitiveness-and introduce research-based resources that you can use in
your adult and family literacy programs and classrooms. This edition
features the
<http://www.nifl.gov/lincs/resourcecollections/RC_planning.html> Program
Management Collection, which covers the topics of Assessment, Learning
Disabilities, and Program Improvement.




What's New in the Program Management Resource Collection?

The National Institute for Literacy's LINCS Discussion lists hosted Brenda
Dann-Messier, the Assistant Secretary of the Office of Vocational and Adult
Education, January 11-15, 2010, for a conversation about reauthorization of
the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). More information about this conversation
may be found at <http://www.nifl.gov/lincs/discussions/10WIA>
http://www.nifl.gov/lincs/discussions/10WIA


<http://www.nifl.gov/lincs/resourcecollections/abstracts/programplanning/RC_
plan_abs02.html> Assessment Strategies & Reading Profiles (ASRP) presents
research-based assessment practices for the adult education classroom. This
online diagnostic reading assessment, based on the ARCS Study, shows
instructors how to identify students' reading strengths and weaknesses. For
more information on this tool, join us at the
<http://coabeproliteracy2010.org/index2/> COABE/ProLiteracy pre-conference:
"Free, On-Line Adult Reading Assessment and Instruction Resources from the
National Institute for Literacy" Monday, March 15, 8:30 - 11:30 am.

An online discussion of this topic took place on the LINCS Assessment List
January 24-29, 2010, and more information may be found at
<http://www.nifl.gov/lincs/discussions/assessment/10AssessDev>
http://www.nifl.gov/lincs/discussions/assessment/10AssessDev

The discussion of dyslexia has been a hot topic on the Learning Disabilities
Discussion List recently. You can search the
<http://www.nifl.gov/mailman/listinfo/Learningdisabilities/> LD List
Archives to catch up on this conversation. Or learn more about dyslexia in
this Focus on Basics article:
<http://www.nifl.gov/lincs/resourcecollections/abstracts/programplanning/RC_
plan_abs11.html> The Neurobiology of Reading and Dyslexia. The article
summarizes the research on dyslexia in a user-friendly manner and talks
about potential implications for adults with dyslexia.


<http://www.nifl.gov/lincs/resourcecollections/abstracts/programplanning/RC_
plan_abs35.html> Building and Sustaining NRS Data Quality: A Guide to
Performance Improvement is a training guide with two purposes: (1) to
inform adult education teachers and program managers about the National
Reporting System and how to implement it and (2) to provide a model for
State and local level adult educators to use in building and using quality
data for program improvement.
