The purpose of this report is to develop an inflationary cost-of-education index that improves upon measures of inflation previously proposed and used by researchers in the field. This report presents a comprehensive measure of inflation for the prices of school inputs. The methodological approach builds on the same hedonic wage model used in previous work by Chambers (1995b) to develop a geographic cost-of-education index.

This study investigates the amount of uncertainty added to NAEP estimates by equating error under both ideal and less than ideal circumstances.
The authors of this paper provide a summary overview of what is already known and what is needed to learn about item types for future NAEP assessments.
According to Cannon-Bowers et al., shared mental models are organized bodies of knowledge that are shared across members of a team. They suggest that such models have the potential to affect teamwork at two levels. First, when communication channels are limited, shared mental models enable team members to anticipate other team member behaviors and information requirements. Second, shared mental models of a team task enable team members to perform team functions from a common frame of reference. Recent work, presented in this volume, is directly related to our first principle. Of these chapters, Dickinson and McIntyre focus on team knowledge and attitudes, and Kraiger and Wenzel focus on team mental models.
This report summarizes prior efforts to provide guidance in resolving the key issues confronting the development of a national outcome-based reporting system for adult education programs.
