The National Forum on College-Level Learning was established in 2002 to measure what college-educated people know and can do in a comparable way across states. Between 2002 and 2004, the forum worked with the states of Illinois, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Nevada, and South Carolina on a project sponsored by The Pew Charitable Trusts to assess student learning. The project used national assessments of adult literacy, tests that many students already take when they leave college, and specially administered tests of general intellectual skills. The results made it possible to begin assessing both the educational capital available to the states and the contributions their colleges and universities collectively make to it.
