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." 

The ASRP site was revised in 2009 and decommissioned in 2019. The files below, rescued from the decommissioned site, can still be helpful in diagnostically assessing reading.
