Dear Mr. Secretary:

Thanks for your thoughtful letter. Educational Testing Service (not the National Assessment of Educational Progress) sponsored the publication of "The Subtle Danger'' to encourage debate of these important issues.

We are proud of the small role we played in providing a platform for its three distinguished authors as they elaborated their own secondary analysis of NAEP's young-adult literacy data. They will more appropriately address your questions, and their letter follows. It has not been censored by NAEP, nor has it been granted an imprimatur.

Your kind words for NAEP itself are appreciated.

Warmest regards,
Archie E. Lapointe
Executive Director
National Assessment of Educational Progress
