Please join the National Assessment Governing Board and the National Center for Education Statistics on April 10 for NAEP Day. The national and state results of the 2017 National Assessment of Educational Progress in reading and mathematics and results from 27 urban districts will be discussed. Watch our video to learn more from Tonya Matthews, the vice chair of the Governing Board.
Bill Bushaw, the executive director of the Governing Board, will retire in August. We're grateful to Bushaw for his many contributions to our work and for his deep commitment to upholding NAEP as the gold standard in assessment. Information for candidates interested in applying for the position is now available on our website. Please visit the page and spread the word.
In another step in our partnership with the Council of the Great City Schools, we've created a task force on the Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA). The district leaders on the task force will share with the Governing Board how they use and disseminate TUDA data as a means of understanding and promoting best practices. They will also offer feedback to inform the program.
