  • Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium

  • Theory of ActionGoal

    To ensure that all students leave high school prepared for postsecondary success in college or a career through increased student learning and improved teachingSmarter Balanced Assessment Consortium

  • SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium

    Summative assessments using online computer-adaptive technologies

    Efficiently provides accurate measurement of all students, better than a one size fits all approach

    Assesses full range of CCSS in English language arts and math

    Describes both current achievement and growth across time, indicating progress toward college- and career-readiness

    Scores provide reliable state-to-state comparability, with standards set against national and international benchmarks

    States and districts have option of giving the summative tests twice a year

  • SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium

    Optional interim and formative assessments

    Aligned to and reported on the same scale as the summative assessments

    Helps identify specific needs of each student, so teachers can provide appropriate, targeted instructional assistance

    Teachers involved in item and task design and scoring, with interim/formative assessments being non-secure and fully accessible

    Provides students with clear examples of the expected performance on common standards

  • SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium

    Online, tailored reporting system

    Supporting educator access to information about student progress toward career and college readiness

    Student performance history can be transported across districts and states

    Although the backbone of the reporting system is provided by the Consortium, individual states retain jurisdiction over access permissions and front-end look of online reports

  • SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium

    Benefits and efficiencies from economies of scale due to a multi-state consortium

    Cost savings: SMARTER English language arts/Math estimated at ~$21 per student (compared to current ~$43 for WA)[Interim/formative an additional ~$7 per student]

    Shared interoperable software platforms: Item generation, item banking, and adaptive testing no longer exclusive property of vendors

    Agreed-upon protocols for accommodations for students with disabilities and ELL students

  • Assessment DesignThe Consortium will provide the following by the 2014-15 school year:3. Formative tools and resources4. Responsible flexibility5. Distributed summative assessmentContent clusters throughout a courseMost appropriate time for each studentScores rolled upSmarter Balanced Assessment Consortium
