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, 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.
