Additional Background: The National Assessment Governing Board sets policy for the nation’s largest ongoing assessment of what U.S. students know and can do—the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as The Nation’s Report Card. The Governing Board identifies subjects to be tested, determines the content and achievement levels for each assessment, approves all test questions, and pursues innovative ways to make NAEP results more meaningful and relevant to the public. More at: https://www.nagb.gov/governing-board/join-the-board.html
