Australia's National Reporting System (NRS) was developed as a mechanism for reporting the outcomes of adult English language, literacy, and numeracy provision in the country's vocational educational and training system, labor market programs, and the adult and community education sector. This document is intended to explain the NRS to potential users: adult students; curriculum developers; program providers; commonwealth employment service staff; funding authorities; and industry and enterprise training personnel. Discussed first are the NRS's purposes and development. Next, the following components of the NRS are explained: five levels of competency; six aspects of communication; indicators of competence; conditions of performance; workplace and social contexts; and assessment principles. Guidelines for using the NRS are provided. The next five sections each contain materials for use with students at one of the levels of competence measured in the NRS. Each section includes the following: indicators of competence; language and literacy features and performance strategies; numeracy features and performance strategies; and sample activities. Concluding the document are proformas and record sheets.
