Smarter Balanced Assessment - Field Tests Information
At Rio Vista Elementary, our focus is on graduating all students college-prepared and career-ready. To help students achieve that goal, California is one of many states transitioning to new assessments called the Smarter Balanced Assessments. As our partner in your child’s education we want to keep you informed about the changes occurring to help prepare our students for their future.
The Smarter Balanced Assessments are new, next-generation assessments that will measure the full understanding of the Common Core State Standards in math and English language arts/literacy.
LAUSD is helping to lead the way during this transition by participating in a practice test this spring. The practice test is a “trial run” to help make sure the assessment process runs smoothly, and that the items in the assessments are valid, reliable and fair for all students before the full implementation next year.
All students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 will take the practice test of the new assessments during a six-week window, from April 1 – May 16, 2014. Some 9th and 10th grade students will also participate in the Smarter Balanced Assessment practice test this spring for informational purposes only. As a pioneer school helping to lead LAUSD and other school districts, I will share the specific assessment dates for Rio Vista Elementary once they have been confirmed.
What’s different about these new assessments?
For more information about LAUSD’s participation in the Smarter Balanced practice test, please visit the LAUSD's home page at www.lausd.net.
Throughout LAUSD, and especially at Rio Vista Elementary, we believe that a high-quality education rooted in 21st century knowledge and skills is a basic right for all students. Let’s help move the District forward.
