The Sample for NALS and NAAL For both assessments, data were collected via a household survey of a stratified random sample of adults age 16 and older. Additional samples were obtained in specific states in order to provide state-level results; this portion of the assessment was referred to as the State Adult Literacy Survey. In 1992, 12 states participated (California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington); in 2003, 6 states participated (Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, and Oklahoma).
In preparation for the release of the 2003 results, the Department of Education decided to focus specific attention on how NAAL results should be reported and interpreted. The department sought advice from the NRC and requested that its Board on Testing and Assessment (BOTA) recommend performance levels to use in reporting NAAL results. The Committee on Performance Levels for Adult Literacy was established to provide this advice. The committee included individuals with a broad array of expertise, including adult education, educational measurement and standard setting, English for speakers of other languages, literacy and literacy measurement, psychology, political science, public health, sociology, statistics, and survey methodology.
