ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Secretary announces tests, test forms, and delivery formats that the Secretary determines to be suitable for use in the National Reporting System for Adult Education (NRS). The Secretary also clarifies that, to provide for the transition from the performance accountability system for Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA) programs under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 to the performance accountability system for AEFLA as reauthorized by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), this announcement will remain effective until June 30, 2016.

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 by States and local eligible providers. 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 § 462.12(c)(2) of the NRS regulations. On April 16, 2008, we published in the Federal Register a notice inviting test publishers 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 2010 notice. A sevenyear 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 to be met by the completion of the three-year period. If these conditions were met, the Secretary would approve 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 in the February 2010 notice, 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. On August 6, 2012, we published in the Federal Register (77 FR 46749) the same list of forms and computer delivery formats for the tests published in the September 2011 notice. We also announced a sunset period during which States and local providers could continue to use tests with three-year SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\29OCN1.SGM 29OCN1
