Smarter Balanced has shifted the first week of the Field Test and testing will now begin on Tuesday, March 25. SBAC has developed a general set of guidelines for Field Test schools to follow as we move forward together.
To lessen the impact of the delay on all involved parties, first subwindow schools should attempt to shift their testing timeframe to the second subwindow. All participating schools have the flexibility to shift their testing subwindows as late as necessary within the overall testing window. We do not intend to extend the testing window beyond June 6, although Smarter Balanced will offer a “make-up week” from June 7-13 for schools requesting an extension. Extension requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Please contact the Smarter Balanced Field Test Helpdesk at 1-855-833-1969 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reschedule your testing subwindow. We will continue to provide you with updates as we receive more information regarding the delay. Thank you for your patience and continued support in making our Field Test a success.
