The more than 20 countries that participated in Phase 1 of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) Civic Education Study were asked to respond to 18 sets of framing questions formulated by an international planning committee. A National Expert Panel met to generate responses to the 18 sets of framing questions. Panelists volunteered to draft written responses to approximately two questions each, commenting on six points raised by the international committee: importance, policies, terminology, public discourse/controversy, organizations, and sources. Drafts were then evaluated by the whole panel. The National Expert Panel identified the questions they thought would be of highest priority, and these priorities were considered along with those of the other participating countries when the international committee selected the four core international questions addressed in the third document in this series. An annotated list of organizations involved in civic education in the United States is part of this document; these nongovernmental organizations, professional associations, and varied groups provide materials, educate teachers, sponsor contests, influence policy, and draw attention to particular facets of civic education. Information was obtained from the "Encyclopedia of Associations 95," as well as from organizational Web sites, responses from a survey sent to organizations, telephone interviews with organizational staff, and brochures obtained from exhibits.
