Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium Sample Items Public Release

Sample Smarter Balanced English Language Arts/Literacy and Math Items and Performance Tasks will be released to the public on October 9, 2012. The samples illustrate the rigor and complexity of the ELA/Literacy and Math items and performance tasks students will encounter on the consortium’s assessments. They will also signal to educators the shifts in instruction that will be required to help students meet the demands of the Common Core and the new assessments that will replace OAKS Reading, OAKS Writing and OAKS Mathematics in 2014-2015. For further information please access the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium website at www.smarterbalanced.org.
