In the current legislation that reauthorized NAEP (The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (Pub.

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.
