SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) 44 states participating in assessment consortia The SBAC goal… 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. So that all 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 school year. To learn more...the SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium can be found online at
