Smarter Balanced Technology Strategy Framework and System Requirements Specifications Updated

The technology planning framework has been updated to clarify the minimum hardware and software requirements that will allow schools and districts to evaluate which of their existing devices will support the administration of next-generation assessments. The recommended minimum hard drive space for new purchases has been amended from “recommending an 80 GB hard drive” to “recommending an 80 GB hard drive or at least 1 GB of hard drive space available.” Additionally, the minimum requirements for users with Windows-based tablet devices running Windows 8, now excludes Windows Runtime (RT). The full Smarter Balanced Technology Strategy Framework and System Requirements Specifications report can be accessed at http://www.smarterbalanced.org/smarter-balanced-assessments/technology/.
