|Technology Readiness Tool Update - October 18, 2012|
Smarter Balanced is working with member states to develop comprehensive minimum technology requirements detailing bandwidth, hardware, and operating system specifications for devices eligible to administer the assessments beginning in the 2014-15 school year. These guidelines will be informed by the results of the Technology Readiness Tool and are expected to be released in October 2012.
To help schools and districts make instructional technology purchases over the next two years, Smarter Balanced has developed new hardware purchasing guidelines. These hardware and operating system guidelines are meant to inform current and future purchasing decisions to ensure that new devices are compatible with the Smarter Balanced assessment system in 2014-15.
