The National Reporting System (NRS) is the accountability system for the federally funded, State-administered adult education program. It addresses the accountability requirements of the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, Title II of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA-P.L. 105-220). NRS Tips is a new quick reference tool for state directors, program directors and adult education teachers.

NRS Tips are written and produced by the staff at the American Institutes for Research (AIR), a non-profit research and policy organization (see www.air.org). AIR is under contract with the Division of Adult Educational and Literacy (DAEL) of the U.S. Department of Education. Visit nresweb.org for information on a growing number of topics.
