The Assessment Strategies and Reading Profiles (ASRP) section of LINCS was designed in 2002 by the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL), with funding from the National Institute for Literacy, to provide "research-based assessment strategies to improve reading instruction for Adult Basic Education (ABE) and Adult Secondary Education (ASE) learners."

These tools were "designed to provide useful portraits for both practitioners and policy makers of the various types or clusters of readers enrolled in US adult basic education programs, including both native speakers and those in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes."

The ASRP site was revised in 2009 and decommissioned in 2019. These files, rescued from the decommissioned site, can still be helpful in diagnostically assessing reading. [See also Free Diagnostic Assessments of Reading and Evidence-Based Reading Instruction (EBRI).]
