Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium Achievement Level Descriptors Development

Educators and experts will help draft achievement level descriptors (ALDs) during a workshop October 1-5 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Smarter Balanced work group members, grade level and content experts, K-12 teachers, and higher education faculty will participate in this initial process. Workshop participants will develop documents that summarize the knowledge, skills, and abilities expected of students in each achievement level as part of the Smarter Balanced assessment system. Dr. Dev P. Sinha, Mathematics Professor at the University of Oregon and Rachel Aazzerah, Science and Social Sciences Assessment Specialist at the Oregon Department of Education, were both selected to represent Oregon during this workshop. For additional information please access the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium website atwww.smarterbalanced.org.
