ELA Content Specifications Available For Final Review

SMARTER Balanced has announced that the Consortium’s revised content specifications for English language arts/literacy are available for review. This draft reflects revisions based on feedback from more than 200 individuals and organizations. Stakeholders will have until 11:59 p.m. Pacific time on Tuesday, September 27 to submit feedback on this final review of the ELA/literacy content specifications. The final ELA/literacy content specifications will be posted in October.

Once finalized, the content specifications for math and ELA/literacy will serve as the basis for the SMARTER Balanced system of summative and interim assessments and formative assessment support for teachers. These specifications will be used to develop the English/Language Arts assessments given to Oregon students beginning in the 2014-2015 school year.

The ELA/literacy content specifications materials are available at: http://www.smarterbalanced.org/Resources.aspx. Instructions on how to provide feedback are posted at the same location.
