Smarter Balanced Field Test Classroom Activity and Performance Task Administration Guidelines Released

The Field Test is comprised of two separate assessments, the non-performance task (non-PT) items and the classroom activity/performance task (PT). Smarter Balanced recommends that students take the PT and the non-PT items on separate days in the following sequence:
  • Non-PT items
  • Classroom Activity
  • PT items

If districts/schools elect to administer these in a different order, the classroom activity must always occur prior to the administration of the PT.

Additional guidelines and instructions on how to download and administer the classroom activity and performance task(s) are available at http://sbac.portal.airast.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Classroom-Activity-and-PT-Administration-Guidelines.pdf PDF. It is recommended that schools and districts download and review the classroom activity at least one week prior to the planned delivery of the classroom activity and performance task. Classroom activities will be posted on the Smarter Balanced Field Test portal webpage at (http://sbac.portal.airast.org/field-test/) on March 10, 2014.
