Once adopted, the policy will be used in setting and reporting achievement levels for NAEP assessments. Additional information (including the materials referenced below) can be found on the Governing Board website at https://www.nagb.gov/news-andevents/calendar/public-comment-onals-policy.html. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION SUMMARY: soliciting public comment for guidance in finalizing a revised policy on Developing Student Achievement Levels for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The Governing Board is authorized to formulate policy guidelines for NAEP. The NAEP legislation specifies that the Governing Board is to develop appropriate student achievement levels for each subject and grade tested. Such levels are determined by identifying the knowledge and skills that can be measured and verified using widely accepted professional assessment standards. It is anticipated that the revised policy on Developing Student Achievement Levels for NAEP will be presented for approval at the National Assessment Governing Board quarterly meeting on November 15–17, 2018. Public and private parties and organizations are invited to provide written comments and recommendations. Voluntary participation by all interested parties is urged. This notice sets forth the review schedule and provides information for accessing additional materials that will be useful for this review. PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Proposed Revised Policy on Developing Student Achievement Levels for the National Assessment of Educational Progress The proposed revised policy can be downloaded from the Governing Board website. Existing Policy on Developing Student Performance Levels for the National Assessment of Educational Progress The existing policy (adopted in 1995) can be downloaded from the Governing Board website. Governing Board’s Formal Response to the Evaluation of NAEP Achievement Levels From 2014–2016, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine conducted an independent evaluation of the NAEP achievement levels. The Governing Board’s formal response to the recommendations put forth in the evaluation noted that the revision of the Board policy on developing achievement levels for NAEP would specify a process and timeline for conducting regularly recurring reviews of the achievement level descriptions and would be explicit about the conditions that necessitate consideration of a new standard setting. More information about the evaluation and the Governing Board’s response can be found on the Governing Board website. A link to the final report from the evaluation can be found on the Governing Board website. Summary of Proposed Revisions Compared to the existing 1995 policy on Developing Student Performance Levels for NAEP, the proposed revised policy reflects: • Reorganization of principles, streamlining of language, minimization of redundancies • Minor (non-substantive) edits to the NAEP policy definitions for clarity • A change in terminology from Proficient to NAEP Proficient to better differentiate the NAEP achievement levels from other common uses of Basic, Proficient, Advanced • A new principle on periodic review of achievement level descriptions and cut scores, prompted by the Board’s response to the evaluation of NAEP achievement levels • A new principle to clarify participation of multiple stakeholders at various points throughout process • A new principle to summarize the role of the Board • Reference to an interpretative guide that would accompany the release of E:\FR\FM\10SEN1.SGM 10SEN1
