Smarter Balanced Assessment Information

Starting in the 2014-15 school year, the state is shifting away from the October NECAP tests in reading, writing and math to a new form of test called Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA).  The SBA will be administered through computers each spring.  More information on these new tests can be found here:
National PTA Guide to New Assessments
NH Dept. of Education FAQs on Smarter Balanced Transition
The science NECAP will continue to be administered each spring.

Try out the new Smarter Balanced Test
You can try your hand at taking a practice version of the new Smarter Balanced test here.  You will find sample questions and tutorials on how the test works.  As mentioned last week, students in grades 3 - 8 and grade 11 will be taking these new state tests in English Language Arts and Mathematics this spring.  The Smarter Balanced tests replace the NECAP tests. Smarter Balanced will be used by 20 states including New Hampshire.  This will allow us to compare our students' performance to other high performing school districts across the country.  Students will take these tests on the computer over several days.  Over the coming weeks, we will continue to share information about Smarter Balanced, how it works, and what your child can expect.
