The 2003 Nat. Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL) assessed the English literacy of adults in the U.S. The assessment was administered to more than 19,000 adults (ages 16 and older). The tasks included on the assessment were designed to measure functional literacy. Unlike indirect measures of literacy, the assessment measured literacy directly through tasks completed by adults. These tasks represent a range of literacy activities that adults are likely to face in their daily lives. The main literacy assessment and the core literacy tasks are two of the four components of the NAAL project. This

This study features a collection of eight case studies of exemplary cases from secondary schools as well as international literature reviews and policy analysis related to formative assessment – the frequent assessments of student progress to identify learning needs and shape teaching.  It examines such issues as benefits and barriers for using formative assessment, policy frameworks and implications, and formative assessment in practice.  Achievement gains attributed to formative assessment are reported as being quite high, but it is not yet practiced systematically.  This book makes the
