Boonsboro Elementary School teacher Kris McGee of Keedysville was one of 88 panelists, from a nationwide pool of some 400 nominees, who recently helped set the scoring standards for the 1998 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) in civics.

Commonly known as "The Nation's Report Card," the NAEP periodically tests samples of fourth, eighth and 12th-grade students in various subjects.

McGee joined other panelists, NAEP staff members and experts in St. Louis for five days of activities related to setting the criteria by which students' performance on the NAEP civics test will be rated.
