Written/scored as a minimum proficiency
Clearly defined by standards
Static across subjects and grades
All students in the state took the same tests in the same content areas.
SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessments)
Computer adaptive test
Test changes based on student's responses
Multiple questioning techniques
Selected response, constructed response, technology enhanced
Performance tasks use real-world scenarios
Created by teachers (including 9 from SD271)
Core = Consistent
Standards = Expectations
Standards ≠ Curriculum
Standards ≠ Instruction
Standards ≠ Textbooks
Standards ≠ Values
Our "Top 40" have designed and piloted in English language arts and mathematics:
New curricular guides
New units and lessons
We are now replicating to other content areas and subjects.
Join us in taking the Smarter-Balanced Practice Test at the table
Encourage our students to do their best.
SMARTER-BALANCED TESTING ENDS:
There are no student/school/district results from this "field test."
First official results will be in 2014-2015.
Focus groups will be held around the district after each test to discuss how students felt about the exam and reinforce best practices.
