Smarter Balanced (SBAC)

By adopting the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), more than 40 states have established clear, consistent expectations for the knowledge and skills students need to succeed in college and the workplace. To help students meet these goals, teachers need new ways to monitor student progress and better tools to meet their unique needs. Smarter Balanced is working with K-12 teachers, administrators, and state policymakers to develop and test a balanced system of assessments that will be implemented in the 2014-15 school year.
