Parent Guides to the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments

CDE has posted a comprehensive online resource, Parent Guides to the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8, and Grade 11 (see attached). These are specific to the CAASPP computer tests and can also be found at this website:

The Parent Guides provide subject by subject, grade by grade sample Smarter Balanced assessment questions. The sample items explain the academic standards being addressed and clearly show within the examples the kinds of questions students must answer correctly to reach each achievement level.

 

These will be very helpful for our families.
