Clarification: Stylus Not Required for Smarter Field Test

ODE has received inquiries from districts regarding whether Smarter plans to require use of a stylus when administering the Smarter Mathematics Assessment. While Smarter is investigating the use of a stylus for future administrations of the Smarter Mathematics Assessment, they will not be required for the 2013-2014 field test or for the 2014-2015 operational assessment. Pending the results of the Math Reasoning Project which is anticipated to be completed in 2016-17, Smarter would first introduce the use of a stylus in the context of the Smarter interim assessments before phasing them in for use on the operational summative assessment in later years.
