Student Testing

Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium

What is the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium or SBAC?  The SBAC is an assessment system designed to assess standards for all students.  Summative, or end-of-year tests, measure student achievement and growth in English and math in grades 3–8 and high school. Students take a customized test using a computer adaptive format: questions get harder when students answer correctly and easier when they answer incorrectly, allowing students to better demonstrate what they know.  The online format with extended research, writing, and problem solving tasks measure the critical thinking and problem-solving skills students need for success.
