Ramsay W. Selden, a member of the staff of the National Commission on Excellence in Education, has been named director of the Council of Chief State School Officers' new Center for the Coordination of Assessment and Evaluation. Mr. Selden assumes his new position this week.

Excellence Indicators

The center, which the school chiefs voted to establish at their November 1984 meeting, is intended to assist the states and the federal government in devising a set of educational indicators to monitor the condition of education in the nation.

N.I.E. Program Officer

For the past year, Mr. Selden has worked in the national commission's excellence-indicators division, which has been assessing the adequacy of various efforts to gauge educational progress and making recommendations on how to improve them.

Before joining the commission, Mr. Selden served as a program officer in the National Institute of Education and as an education-policy fellow in the U.S. Education Department.
