its statutory obligations. The Information Collection Clearance

Management, publishes that notice containing proposed information

existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; 
(4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information;

    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 2011 Wave 2 submittal contains the grades 8 and 
12 writing non-cognitive (computer-delivered) questions; the National 
Indian Education Study (NIES) student, teacher, and school questions; 
and the non-cognitive questions for three special studies: The 
Mathematics Computer-Based Study (MCBS), Knowledge and Skills 
Appropriate (KaSA) Study, and the alignment study between NAEP and 
TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) 
mathematics and science questions.
