1971 NCTE Annual Business Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada
An examination of the National Assessment of Educational Progress has occasioned great concern among members of the Commission on Composition as to the validity of basic assumptions of the Assessment and certain of its measuring instruments. Be it therefore
Resolved, that, in order to facilitate a more complete understanding of the National Assessment of Educational Progress by the membership of the National Council of Teachers of English, an immediate and thorough study of the National Assessment be carried out by appropriate members of the Council, and that their findings be given the widest possible distribution.
