Smarter Balanced Update on Assessment Report Design

The Oregon Department of Education would like to share the following update from Smarter Balanced regarding a progress update about the data reports that will be developed for the assessment.

Dear Smarter Balanced K-12 State Leads:

We are excited to announce the posting of a Progress Update from the Smarter Balanced Assessment Reporting Work Group and Wireless Generation (Reporting Development contractor for Smarter Balanced).

The Progress Update serves as a brief introduction to the key concepts and methodology being used to drive the development of stakeholder-focused reporting of assessment results. In addition, the document provides preliminary findings about some of the reporting system's primary user groups and their priorities, as well as a sample user story for each.

The process of report design is based largely around input from all user groups, and the public's feedback is welcomed and appreciated. Toward this end, an online survey will be made available on January 7, 2013, to gather further input from stakeholders about user purposes for reports. An announcement involving survey instructions will be made once the survey is posted.

The Progress Update is located on the Smarter Balanced website at: http://www.smarterbalanced.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Reporting-Progress-Update-Dec-2012.pdf PDF.

My sincerest thanks for your time and attention,

Justin Sean Kenlon
Wireless Generation
