    To further support our schools during Oregon’s transition to the Smarter Balanced assessments, ODE recently administered a survey to collect information regarding our state’s technology readiness. To help districts gauge their technology capacity relative to other districts and identify areas that may need bolstering prior to the start of the Smarter Balanced test window, ODE has posted the results of this survey. In addition to summarizing district survey responses, the report includes a list of high-level recommendations and links to additional resources available to help districts prepare.
