Important Limitations

Important Limitations: The Practice Tests provide a preview of the Smarter Balanced assessments, but they do not encompass the full range of content that students will encounter on the spring 2014 Field Test or on the operational assessments, and should not be used to guide instructional decisions. In addition, students and teachers will not receive reports or scores from the Practice Tests. Although the operational assessment system will be computer adaptive, the Practice Tests follow a fixed-form model.

By fall 2013, the Practice Tests will be augmented with additional features, including:

  • Performance tasks for mathematics (including classroom-based activities);
  • Classroom-based activities for ELA/literacy performance tasks in selected grades;
  • Scoring rubrics; and
  • American Sign Language translation and other accommodation and accessibility tools.

Development of the Smarter Balanced Assessment System will continue after the release of the Practice Tests and through summer 2014 in collaboration with member states and educators.
