Welcome to the LINCS Assessment Discussion List moderated by Marie Cora.
The purpose of this list is to provide an on-going professional development forum for practitioners, program administrators, volunteers, researchers, and policy makers who interact with assessment and evaluation in the field of Adult Literacy. The focus of this professional development forum is to:
- Discuss issues relevant to multiple forms of assessment and evaluation as they relate to Adult Literacy;
- Provide the field with information and resources that can be used to develop, expand, and inform the Adult Literacy field on assessment issues;
- Enrich and improve public policies related to assessment and evaluation by providing an open forum for the exchange of relevant policy ideas.
These discussions can and should improve policy, practice, and research. Topics may include assessment issues such as instruction, curricula, self-assessment, and the GED.
