SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 14, 2008, we published in the 
Federal Register final regulations for 34 CFR part 462, Measuring 
Educational Gain in the National Reporting System for Adult Education 
(NRS regulations) (73 FR 2306). The NRS regulations established the 
process the Secretary uses to determine the suitability of tests for 
use in the NRS. We annually publish in the Federal Register and post on 
the Internet at http://www.nrsweb.org a list of the names of tests and 
the educational functioning levels the tests are suitable to measure in 
the NRS as required by Sec.  462.12(c)(2) of the NRS regulations.
    On April 16, 2008, we published in the Federal Register a notice 
providing test publishers an opportunity to submit tests for review 
under the NRS regulations (73 FR 20616).
    On February 2, 2010, we published in the Federal Register a notice 
(February 2010 notice) listing the tests and test forms the Secretary 
determined to be suitable for use in the NRS (75 FR 5303).
    The Secretary determined tests and test forms to be suitable for a 
period of either seven or three years from the date of the February 
notice. A seven-year approval required no additional action on the part 
of the publisher, unless the information the publisher submitted as a 
basis for the Secretary's review was inaccurate or unless the test is 
substantially revised. A three-year approval was issued with a set of 
conditions that must be met by the completion of the three-year period. 
If these conditions are met, the Secretary approves a period of time 
for which the test may continue to be used in the NRS.
    On September 12, 2011, we published in the Federal Register (76 FR 
56188) a notice (September 2011 notice) to update the list published on 
February 2, 2010 (75 FR 5303), and include suitable test delivery 
formats. The update clarified that some, but not all, tests using 
computer-adaptive or computer-based delivery formats are suitable for 
use in the NRS.
    The Secretary publishes here the same list of forms and computer 
delivery formats for the tests published in the September 2011 notice. 
Adult education programs must use only the approved forms and computer 
delivery formats for the tests published in this notice. If a 
particular test form or computer delivery format is not explicitly 
specified for a test in this notice, it is not approved for use in the 
NRS.
