Here’s an interesting edujob and one that does not come open all that often: Executive Director at NAGB. They are the team that brings you NAEP. The deadline is April 30th. Here’s an overview:
The National Assessment Governing Board is seeking a dynamic leader with expertise in effective management, strong communication skills, and public relations, and who seeks a position with an independent organization that sets policy on education assessment at the federal level.
The Governing Board was created by Congress in 1988 to set policy for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)—otherwise known as The Nation’s Report Card. NAEP is a large-scale assessment program that measures student achievement across the nation, in all states, and in 27 large urban districts. The 26-member independent and bipartisan Board comprises state, local, and federal officials, educators, business representatives, and members of the public.
The Executive Director supervises a dedicated staff that supports the Board’s work in several key areas, including selecting subject areas to be assessed; developing assessment objectives; and overseeing the reporting and dissemination of results including the initial public release, among other congressionally mandated responsibilities.
