The National Assessment Governing Board is currently seeking nominations of qualified individuals to serve as members of the board for a four-year term beginning October 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. The Secretary of Education will appoint the members from a list of finalists submitted by the Board.

For 2012, the Board 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; and General Public Representative. The deadline for receiving nominations is September 30, 2011.
