|Smarter Balanced Field Test Resources|
Smarter Balanced has released several new testing resources for schools and districts that are now available via the Field Test portal:
Please visit http://sbac.portal.airast.org/ to access these documents. Both new and old resources are available in the “Resources and Documentation” section of the “Field Tests” tab.
Regarding the SB Assessment Scribing Protocol:
The Scribing Protocol for Smarter Balanced Assessments will assist schools and districts in standardizing scribing measures and ensuring that this form of designated support and accommodation provides a valid measure of students’ college and career readiness. Please see the Smarter Balanced Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guidelines (available via the SB Field Test Portal) for specific details regarding the Scribing Protocol.
Regarding Performance Task In-Class Activities:
In-class activity assignments are now posted. However, we have discovered several discrepancies throughout the document and are currently working with ETS and Smarter Balanced to resolve these issues. We will notify districts when an updated, corrected version of this document is available.
