effective speaking and listening skills
for a range of purposes and audiences.”
“Students can engage in
research and inquiry to investigate topics, and
to analyze, integrate, and present information.”
“Students can read closely and analytically
to comprehend a range of increasingly complex
literary and informational texts.”

“Students can demonstrate college and career readiness in mathematics.”
“Students can solve a range of
complex well-posed problems in pure and applied mathematics,
making productive use of knowledge and problem solving strategies.”

“Students can clearly and precisely
construct viable arguments
to support their own reasoning
and to critique the reasoning of others.”
“Students can analyze complex, real-world scenarios
and can construct and use mathematical models
to interpret and solve problems.”

E. Distinguish correct logic or reasoning from that which is flawed, and—if there is a flaw in the argument—explain what it is.

F. Base arguments on concrete referents such as objects, drawings, diagrams, and actions.

G. At later grades, determine conditions under which an argument does and does not apply.

4. What content areas are included?
Mathematics and English language arts/literacy.

6. What grades can take the Smarter Balanced Field Test?
Students in grades 3 through 8 in most schools.
Firgrove & Spinning will not participate in the Field Test.
Our High Schools will not participate in the Field Test
10. Will training be available?

Web-based training modules are available now:
Introduction to the Field Test (geared toward students)
What is a Computer Adaptive Test (CAT)?
Performance Tasks
Test Administrator Training
Administrator Interface
Student Interface
Accommodations
Tools for Student Use
Technology Requirements
TIDE User Roles

The Test Administrator Manual (TAM) is also available

1. What is the purpose of the spring 2014 Smarter Balanced Field Test (FT)?
Test the performance of over 20,000 newly developed test items
Evaluate the test delivery system.
Ensure an accurate scale to determine final achievement levels (i.e., cut scores).

2. What are the benefits of participating in the spring 2014 FT?
Students: Gain hands on experience with innovative technology and performance tasks.
Teachers and administrators: Gain valuable experience with administration logistics.
Districts: Benefit from learning where their technology gaps may be.
California: Benefit by having the diversity of its student population included in the analysis of test and item quality and development of achievement level scores and descriptors.
8. Will the Field Test be administered on paper or only on computer?
The Field Test will be administered only via computer.

9. Will the Field Test be an adaptive test?
For most students, it will be a fixed-form test —with questions of varying difficulty.
Toward the end of the Field Test, Smarter Balanced will begin testing the adaptive engine.
