Interim reports

Note that all except the first interim report have now been updated, revised and incorporated into either the final report (in the case of the special report on the curriculum) or the research volume, so they can no longer be downloaded in their earlier forms. However, briefings and overview briefings on all the interim reports can still be downloaded here and here.
