Smarter Balanced has three components:

  1. The Digital Library contains on-demand professional development materials designed to help teachers and an online collaboration platform to give them a place to share what’s working in their classrooms. (Fact sheet, PDF).

  2. Interim assessments are optional. They are flexible, non-secure periodic assessments to be offered at teachers’ and schools’ discretion throughout the school year. These computer-based tests will provide meaningful feedback that teachers can use to help students succeed.

  3. Summative assessments are required. They will take place during the last 12 weeks of the school year. These computer-based tests will help schools evaluate how well their students performed by comparing them with students from other schools across the nation. The end-of-year assessments also will empower families by providing them with a clear indication of how well their children are progressing toward mastering the academic knowledge and skills necessary for college and career readiness.

Visit the WCAP Portal for more information on Smarter Balanced assessments.
