Assessments based on the Common Core State Standards
  • SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC)
    • General Assessments
  • Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM)
    • Alternate Assessments

To develop a set of comprehensive and innovative assessments for grades 3-8 and high school in English language arts and mathematics aligned to the Common Core State Standards

Students leave high school prepared for postsecondary success in college or a career through increased student learning and improved teaching

The assessments shall be operational across Consortium states in the 2014-15 school year


Assessment system that balances summative, interim, and formative components for ELA and mathematics:

Summative Assessment (Computer Adaptive)

Mandatory comprehensive assessment in grades 3–8 and 11 (testing window within the last 12 weeks of the instructional year) that supports accountability and measures growth

Selected response, short constructed response, extended constructed response, technology enhanced, and performance tasks

Interim Assessment (Computer Adaptive)

Optional comprehensive and content-cluster assessment

Learning progressions

Available for administration throughout the year

Selected response, short constructed response, extended constructed response, technology enhanced, and performance tasks

Formative Processes and Tools

Optional resources for improving instructional learning

Assessment literacy

  • Project designed to support balanced assessment systems
  • Planning for the fourth year
  • Teachers and administrators do not receive much assessment training
    • Different types of assessment for different purposes

CCSSO Draft Definition of Formative Assessment

Formative assessment is a process used by teachers and students during instruction that provides feedback to adjust ongoing teaching and learning to improve students’ achievement of intended instructional outcomes.
