Smarter Balanced Draft Initial Achievement Level Descriptors Released for Public Review

The Consortium released draft initial achievement level descriptors (ALDs) for feedback and review through January 15, 2013. The initial ALDs describe levels of student performance in English language arts/literacy and mathematics on the Smarter Balanced assessments. Smarter Balanced has also released a college content-readiness definition with associated implications for 12th grade and postsecondary coursework at each achievement level on the 11th grade assessment. The ALDs, college content-readiness definition documents can be accessed at http://www.smarterbalanced.org/achievement-level-descriptors-and-college-readiness/. Feedback on the documents can also be submitted through an online survey at the same web page site.
