The National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) is seeking nominations of qualified individuals to serve as members of the board for a four-year term beginning Oct. 1, 2012.
Congress established the 26-member board to set policy for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as The Nation’s Report Card, which informs the public about student achievement nationwide in a number of core subjects. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will appoint the members from a list of finalists submitted by the board.
For 2012, NAGB is seeking nominations for five positions in the following categories:
- testing and measurement expert
- local board of education member
- state legislator (Republican)
- non-public school administrator
- general public representative
The deadline for receiving nominations is Sept 30.
