Building a Next-Generation Assessment System Aligned to the Common Core
The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is developing and rolling out a new assessment system aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
The system will feature a suite of professional resources, including formative, interim, and summative assessment tools available online.
The new assessments and supports are expected to help shift the emphasis in education from focusing on recall to more complex tasks and problem solving.
The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium will not only help educators, policymakers, and parents determine how much students have learned in key content areas, it will also reshape the strategies used to teach them.
