    Abstract: The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is 
a Federally authorized survey of student achievement at grades 4, 8, 
and 12 in various subject areas, such as mathematics, reading, writing, 
science, U.S. history, civics, geography, economics, and the arts. In 
the current legislation that reauthorized NAEP (The No Child Left 
Behind Act of 2001 (Pub. L. 107-110)), Congress mandated again the 
collection of national education survey data through a national 
assessment program. The 2010 Wave 1 submittal contains the student 
background questionnaires being used in the 2010 assessments: Grades 4, 
8, and 12 core (demographic) and subject-specific (civics, geography, 
U.S. history, writing, and mathematics), as well as the grades 4 and 8 
teacher questionnaires; and the grades 4, 8, and 12 school 
questionnaires.
    This information collection is being submitted under the 
Streamlined Clearance Process for Discretionary Grant Information 
Collections (1894-0001). Therefore, the 30-day public comment period 
notice will be the only public comment notice published for this 
information collection.
