2 Questions What is SBAC? Who is being tested?
What is the schedule for testing? What are the access tools and accommodations available for students? What are the similarities/differences between CMT and SBAC? What does the SBAC test look like? What are we doing to prepare for SBAC? Anna

3 What is SBAC? The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is one of two multistate consortia that has developed an assessment system based on the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Three components: Summative assessments – spring 2014 Interim assessments – spring/fall 2014 Formative tools – spring 2014 Anna

4 A National Consortium of States

5 What Elementary Students are Being Tested?
Grade 5 ELA and Math – March 18 – April 4 Grade 4 ELA and Math – April 7 – April 25 Grade 3 ELA and Math – April 28 and May 16 **Grade 5 Science CMT – March 18 Anna

6 What is a Computer Adaptive Test?
Based on student responses the computer program adjusts the difficulty of questions through the assessment Advantages: Provides accurate measurements of student growth over time Item difficult is based on student response Shorter test length Turn around time is significantly reduced CAT will start in spring 2015 Anna

7 CMT v. SBAC Testing Times
ELA 4 hours 50 minutes 4 hours* Math 3 hours 30 minutes 3 hours* Science 1 hour 15 minutes - Principal *includes 30 minute in-class performance task
