Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium Releases New Performance Tasks

Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) has released a set of sample assessment items and performance tasks in English language arts/literacy and mathematics. The sample items and tasks provide an advance look at the types of questions students will encounter when the assessments are implemented in the 2014-15 school year. Developed in collaboration with educators and content experts, the sample items and tasks are meant to help teachers, administrators, and policymakers better understand the Common Core State Standards and prepare for the implementation of the Smarter Balanced assessments. Please note that the sample items and tasks are displayed using a simulated test platform that does not include accessibility and accommodations tools that will be available when the assessments are administered to students.
