Smarter Balanced Technology Update

Smarter Balanced has developed hardware and operating system specifications for new technology purchases as part of a comprehensive approach to technology guidance. These guidelines provide clear information for schools and districts making new instructional technology purchases so that they can proceed with the assurance that these devices will be able to administer the Smarter Balanced assessments in the 2014-15 school year.

The guidelines and FAQ are available at http://www.smarterbalanced.org/smarter-balanced-assessments/technology/. The guidelines that are presented in both of these documents are NOT the “minimum” operating systems that will be allowed for the Smarter Balanced assessments.
