				Welcome to the FIRST Assessment Repository. 
61
				The repository contains detailed information on assessment tools used
62
				[primarily] in biological and ecological science courses.
63
				Records herein adhere to a standard educational metadata specification 
64
				and enable educators to explore effective teaching models and techniques.
65
			</p>
66
			<p class="intro">	
67
				The aim is to associate outcome measures (i.e. student test scores) with the particular concepts
68
				on which the student is being tested and also associate the specific instructional techniques employed 
69
				when presenting that material to the student.
70
			</p>
71
				
72
			<p class="intro">
73
				The repository relies primarily on data collected from and submitted by
74
				professors and instructors.  While this system is still in active development,
75
				a quick search should reveal the depth, flexibility, and utility of the model. 
76
				And, of course, feedback is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
77
			</p>
78
			<p class="intro">
79
				Information about the FIRST Project and it's activities is currently available through the 
80
				<a href="http://www.first2.org/">FIRST</a> site.
