|SMARTER-Balanced Releases Draft Content Specifications for English Language Arts and Literacy- Provide Your Input!|
|The SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium today released draft content specifications in English language arts/literacy (ELA/literacy) for public comment and review. Based on the Common Core State Standards, the content specifications provide a framework for the development of the SMARTER Balanced assessment system.
During the next two months, the Consortium will make both the ELA/literacy and mathematics content specifications available for two rounds of public comment and review. Interested stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on the ELA/literacy content specifications through August 29. The content specifications, feedback surveys and a recorded Webinar on evidence-based design are available on the Consortium’s Website at: http://www.k12.wa.us/SMARTER/Resources.aspx.
Mathematics content specifications will be released August 22 with feedback due by September 12.
