Vermont Statewide Assessment Results Released
BARRE – Today, Secretary of Education Rebecca Holcombe announced statewide results for the 2014-15 Smarter Balanced Assessment. This new, computer adaptive test was developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, a partnership of 31 states plus the US Virgin Islands and the Department of Defense Education Activity Office. These tests, which were administered this spring in 18 states, the US Virgin Islands and Department of Defense schools, provide the first test results aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Over time, these tests will provide teachers and parents with a more reliable and accurate snapshot of how their kids are performing in English Language Arts and Mathematics.
