NRS Implementation Guidelines CoverThe 2016 NRS Implementation Guidelines includes both the current and revised educational functioning level descriptors for adult basic education (ABE).

The revised descriptors will not be implemented until the Secretary has determined that there is at least one assessment that is aligned with the revised descriptors that is suitable for use in the NRS. Until that time, programs will continue to use the current descriptors.

Please be aware that this version of the NRS Implementation Guidelines does not include changes required by WIOA.
