Who Needs Mathematicians for Math, Anyway?

NAEP Mathematics: C
TIMSS Mathematics: A
PISA Mathematics: D
Mathematically speaking, NAEP is a mediocre national assessment, while TIMSS is an excellent international assessment.
So, why is the National Center for Education Statistics spending valuable time and resources producing reports like this one?
(By the way, this report was about performance standards, not content standards.)
