Improvements: NCES has added an additional goal in GPRA, i.e., ''Timeliness of NAEP data for Reading and Mathematics Assessment in support of the President's No Child Left Behind Initiative.'' In addition, NCES is developing a monitoring system to measure external uses of NCES products. Both volume and actual use will be documented in the monitoring system, for specific user groups. The monitoring system will establish baseline measures of usage and application of NCES products from which long-term outcomes can be established.
