Join the Board

The National Assessment Governing Board — created by Congress to oversee the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as The Nation’s Report Card — is a diverse group of leaders from multiple sectors that supports innovative developments in education and lends their education expertise in service of our nation’s students and maintaining NAEP as the gold standard of assessment.

Each year, the Governing Board welcomes new members to lend their education expertise in service of our nation’s students and maintaining NAEP as the gold standard of assessment. Members work to enhance NAEP’s value as a resource that can be used to improve student achievement

What Do Governing Board Members Do?

The National Assessment Governing Board — made up of educators, policymakers, parents, business representatives, and others — determines the content, frameworks, and achievement levels for NAEP assessments and pursues innovative ways to make NAEP results more meaningful and relevant to the public.

New Governing Board members will help lead groundbreaking efforts that are part of the Governing Board’s Strategic Vision, a comprehensive initiative to focus the Governing Board’s work through 2020 on expanding outreach and partnerships to increase the impact of NAEP.
