I. Abstract NASA’s founding legislation, the Space Act of 1958, as amended, directs the agency to expand human knowledge of Earth and space phenomena and to preserve the role of the United States as a leader in aeronautics, space science, and technology. The NASA Office of Education administers the agency’s national education activities in support of the Space Act, including the performance measurement and evaluation of educational projects and programs. This generic clearance will allow the NASA Office of Education to test and pilot with subject matter experts, secondary students, higher education students, educators, and interested parties new and existing information collection forms and assessment instruments for the purposes of improvement and establishing validity and reliability characteristics of the forms and instruments. Forms and instruments to be tested include program application forms, customer satisfaction questionnaires, focus group protocols, and project activity survey instruments. Methodological testing will include focus group discussions, pilot surveys to test new individual question items as well as the complete form and instrument. In addition, test-retest and similar protocols will be used to determine reliability characteristics of the forms and instruments. Methodological testing will assure that forms and instruments accurately and consistently collect and measure what they are intended to measure and that data collection items are interpreted precisely and consistently, all towards the goal of accurate Agency reporting while improving the execution of NASA Education project activities. This 30-day FRN reflects a reduction in the estimated number of respondents, as published in the 60-day FRN, Volume 78, Number 237, pages 74169–74170 on Tuesday, December 10, 2013.

The Institute’s mission is to inspire libraries and museums to advance innovation, learning and civic engagement. The Institute works at the national level and in coordination with State and local organizations to sustain heritage, culture, and knowledge; enhance learning and innovation; and support professional development. IMLS is responsible for identifying national needs for and trends in museum, library, and information services; measuring and reporting on the impact and effectiveness of museum, library and information services throughout the United States, including programs conducted with funds made available by IMLS; identifying, and disseminating information on, the best practices of such programs; and developing plans to improve museum, library and information services of the United States and strengthen national, State, local, regional, and international communications and cooperative networks (20 U.S.C. Chapter 72, 20 U.S.C. 9108). II. Current Actions The purpose of this collection is to support a program to increase access to museums for underserved audiences through Museums for All, a voluntary program inviting museums to allow Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card holders to receive reduced-price admission to their facilities. This information collection will obtain data from participating museums needed to administer the program, such as institution contact information and a staff person to administer the program. Because this is a new program, additional information will be collected to assess implementation of the program components, the efficacy of Agency supplied materials, and the impact of the program.

I. Abstract

    NASA's founding legislation, the Space Act of 1958, as amended, 
directs the agency to expand human knowledge of Earth and space 
phenomena and to preserve the role of the United States as a leader in 
aeronautics, space science, and technology. The NASA Office of 
Education administers the agency's national education activities in 
support of the Space Act, including the performance measurement and 
evaluation of educational projects and programs. This generic clearance 
will allow the NASA Office of Education to test and pilot with subject 
matter experts, secondary students, higher education students, 
educators, and interested parties new and existing information 
collection forms and assessment instruments for the purposes of 
improvement and establishing validity and reliability characteristics 
of the forms and instruments. Forms and instruments to be tested 
include program application forms, customer satisfaction 
questionnaires, focus group protocols, and project activity survey 
instruments. Methodological testing will include focus group 
discussions, pilot surveys to test new individual question items as 
well as the complete form and instrument. In addition, test-retest and 
similar protocols will be used to determine reliability characteristics 
of the forms and instruments. Methodological testing will assure that 
forms and instruments accurately and consistently collect and measure 
what they are intended to measure and that data collection items are 
interpreted precisely and consistently, all towards the goal of 
accurate Agency reporting while improving the execution of NASA 
Education project activities.
    This 30-day FRN reflects a reduction in the estimated number of 
respondents, as published in the 60-day FRN, Volume 78, Number 237, 
pages 74169-74170 on Tuesday, December 10, 2013. The targeted 
respondent pool will include educators, pre-college, undergraduate, 
graduate, and post-graduate students
