Section II focuses on development of the model, including proficiency guidelines and assessment plan. Section III is on evaluation of the demonstration project. Section IV provides a "hands-on" type of activity to guide the reader through the process of actually developing an assessment plan. Section V addresses storage and ownership issues.
