4 Overview

5 Overview Q: What are the Smarter Balanced Interim assessments?
A: The interim assessments are one component of the Smarter Balanced assessment system and are designed to support teaching and student learning throughout the year and provide information to inform instruction. The items are developed under the same conditions, protocols, and review procedures as those used in the summative assessments.

6 Overview Q: Are students required to take interim assessments?
A: The interim assessments are optional, and are recommended. They enable teachers to check student progress throughout the year, providing actionable information to inform instruction and help students meet the challenge of college- and career-ready standards.

7 Overview Two types of interim assessments:
Interim Comprehensive Assessments (ICAs) English language arts/literacy (ELA) test and performance task Mathematics test and performance task Interim Assessment Blocks (IABs) There are 5 to 17 IABs per grade and content area

8 Overview Interim Comprehensive Assessments: Fixed form
Use the same blueprints and assess the same standards as the summative assessments Include the same item types and formats, including performance tasks, as the summative assessments Yield overall scale scores, overall achievement level designations, and claim score information Report on the same scale as the summative test

9 Overview Interim Assessment Blocks Fixed form
Focus on fewer sets of skills (e.g., Geometry) Flexible; supports instruction and curriculum Include the same item types and formats, including classroom activities and performance tasks, as the summative assessments Yield overall information for each block Results are reported as Below Standard, At/Near Standard, and Above Standard

10 Available ICAs and IABs for the 2014–15 School Year
Overview Q: At which grade levels are the interim assessments available? A: Student Grade Level Available ICAs and IABs for the 2014–15 School Year K–2 Grade 3 3 Grade 3–4 4 Grade 3–5 5 Grade 4–6 6 Grade 5–7 7 Grade 6–8 8 Grade 7–High School 9 Grade 8–High School 10 11 12

11 Overview Q: How can I administer an interim assessment?
A: Interim tests are administered in the same way as summative tests. The Test Administrator (TA) must use the TA Interface (linked on and the student must log onto the test through the secure browser.

12 Overview Q: How will the interim assessments be scored?
A: Most responses are machine scored. All open- ended responses are hand scored by a TA through the interim assessment hand scoring module. The machine-scored results are held until the open-ended portions of the test have been hand scored and submitted. The results are then combined to generate a student report.

13 Systems Used for the Interim Assessments
Requires TOMS logon credentials TOMS Verify student demographic data 1 Requires same logon credentials used for the Digital Library Test Administrator Interface Administer assessments 2 Data Warehouse Receive and view student interim assessment reports 4 Interim Hand Scoring System Hand score students’ constructed responses 3

14 Systems Used for the Interims
Before you use the Interims: Teachers will need TA access to TOMS to administer and hand score the interim assessments. All TOMS users must sign and submit a security affidavit. Teachers will use their Digital Library logon credentials to access the Data Warehouse to view student interim assessment reports.
