Smarter Balanced (SBAC) Assessments

As a member of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC), Vermont has joined with a cadre of other states to develop the next generation of educational tests for English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics. SBAC will be fully aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), use state of the art computer adaptive testing and accessibility technologies, and will provide a continuum of summative, interim and formative tools that can be used for a variety of educational purposes. For more detailed information, visit the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium website.
