RISE Webinar: I encourage Math and Numeracy members to participate

Hello all,

AIR will be demonstrating a new interactive data tool released by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) that uses the U.S. PIAAC Skills Map to show Adult Literacy and Numeracy for a state and even for a particular county. This demonstration will be on Wednesday, Aug 26, 2020.  Here is a link to the announcement: https://community.lincs.ed.gov/announcements/20200730/rise-webinar-piaac-skills-map-implications-research-policy-and-practice

There will be a discussion about the potential uses of the data for policy and research but we can start discussing this tool here, too.  I hope you will join me in attending.

Two Questions:

1. What do you notice about it?

2. What do you wonder?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
