Transcript of Smarter Balanced Assessment and the Common Core

Working with educators, Smarter Balanced will conduct a pilot test of the assessment system. 2012 - 2013 2013 - 2014 2014 - 2015 Spring 2014:
Smarter Balanced conducts Field test of summative and interim assessment items and performance tasks. 2014-15 School Year—
Implementation of assessment system and launch of digital library Summer/Fall 2014:
Training materials available for all users on interpreting interim and summative assessment reports, searching resources, and using collaboration tools in the Digital Library Fall 2012–Fall 2013—
Teacher teams write Field Test items and tasks, review for alignment with CCSS, and check for bias/sensitivity (through fall 2013). Spring 2015:
States administer summative assessment during last 12 weeks of the school year. Performance Tasks for ELA 12:22 Smarter Balanced Released Items A short tour regarding locating and sorting the Smarter Balanced Common Core released assessment questions. Published on Nov 13, 2012 by BSD7Videos 7:33 Published on Jun 27, 2012 by smarterbalanced This module will describe performance tasks in detail and provide examples of key features of the performance tasks that will form an important part of the Smarter Balanced Assessment System. The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is creating next-generation assessments aligned to the Common Core State
Standards (CCSS) in English language arts/literacy and mathematics. Just as the CCSS describe the knowledge and skills
students need to be prepared for college and career, the system of computer adaptive assessments—including summative
and formative tests—will provide important information about whether students are on track, as well as resources and tools
for teachers to help students succeed. What is the
Smarter Balanced Assessment? computer adaptive test performance tasks Summative Components A summative assessment administered during the last 12 weeks of the school year. The summative assessment will
consist of two parts: a computer adaptive test and performance tasks that will be taken on a computer, but will not be computer adaptive. Summative Components Interim Assessment System Resources for Teachers Instructional Videos and Webinars Websites and PDF Downloads Digital Clearinghouse The Smarter Balanced sample items and performance tasks will be accessed through SmarterBalanced.org beginning October 9, 2012. The samples will be displayed in a simulated test platform that will allow users to interact with and score selected items and tasks. The site will be compatible with common Internet browsers, and a full list of compatible browsers will be available. In addition, Smarter Balanced is working with software developers to convert graphics into a format that is compatible with popular tablet devices. Regardless of the requirements to access the sample items and tasks, a variety of eligible computers and tablet devices will be compatible with the operational assessment in the 2014-15 school year.
