National Testing Board Seeks Educators

The National Assessment Governing Board—which supervises the suite of tests in the National Assessment of Educational Progress, the "nation's report card"—is recruiting new members, primarily from the ranks of practicing educators.

The governing board will have five openings for four-year terms to start Oct. 1, 2014:
• A secondary school principal;
• Two teachers, of 4th and 8th grades;
• A state education chief; and
• A representative of the public not employed by federal, state, or local governments.

The call for members also highlights some of the governing board's top priorities for the next year, including its ongoing efforts to benchmark the NAEP for college preparedness, incorporate wide-scale computer-based testing, and its upcoming assessment of technology and engineering literacy. The board will also continue a parent engagement project.
