SBAC Practice Test Now Available

The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) which is designing the new Common Core end of year assessments for California and a number of other states, released online practice tests in June 2013. The practice tests provide an early look at sets of assessment questions aligned to the Common Core for grades 3-8 and 11 in both English language arts/literacy and mathematics. The release of the Practice Tests follows the Smarter Balanced Pilot Test, the first large-scale tryout of items and performance tasks, conducted February to May 2013.
