Smarter Balance Testing

Smarter Balance Testing is coming!!!
Starting this spring, students in grades 3-8 and 11 will take the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) aligned to the Washington State Learning Standards in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math. Illahee students will begin testing in April.

What is Smarter Balanced?
Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) is a comprehensive, mandatory, online assessment for students in grades 3-8 and 11. SBA assesses math and English language arts using computer adaptive technology (CAT). CAT allows SBAC to respond to individual students based on the responses given, and adjusts the difficulty of questions throughout the assessment. SBAC replaced the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) in all school districts for ELA and Math across the state in the 2014-2015 school year.

What Are the Key Components?
SBA is composed of interim and summative assessments. Teachers use the interim assessments to gauge student progress toward mastery of the skills measured by the summative assessment and to assess targeted concepts at strategic points during the school year. SBA asks students to respond to several types of questions including multiple choice, short text (constructed response), and drag-and-drop (select and move objects). There are also performance tasks that incorporate class activities.

SBAC Testing Schedule

5th grade April 18, 19 Math
April 20, 21, 22 English Language Arts
6th grade April 25, 26 Math
April 27, 28, 29 English Language Arts
7th grade May 3, 4, 5 English Language Arts
