Hi everyone,

To the best of my knowledge, the instrument will be used as a broad
survey of adults' knowledge and ability of computer skills in America,
much like the NAAL (National Assessment of Adult Literacy; see
http://nces.ed.gov/naal/). So it wouldn't be available for individual
use.

Hi Julie,

I doubt that the instrument is available -- although when completed
the results will be. For further information you could contact
Sheida.White at ed.gov
