Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBAC) Update
SBAC testing for third through fifth grade officially begins March 30th, 2015. Testing will continue through May 29, 2015.
Students will be taking the following tests:
· English/Language Arts (ELA) -- addresses reading and written expression Common Core Standards
o Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) – addresses students’ reading and comprehension of text, as well as written expression skills in the areas of mechanics (e.g., spelling, capitalization, punctuation, grammar), and sentence and paragraph writing.
o Lesson and two Performance Tasks (PT) – addresses students’ ability to read, and potentially watch a video, on a specific topic and then answer multiple-choice and short-answer questions, as well as skills for writing connected text (i.e., writing longer text organized by paragraphs).
· Math -- addresses all Math Common Core Standards
o Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) – addresses students’ computation and problem solving skills
o Lesson and a Performance Task (PT) – addresses students’ ability to apply mathematical concepts to a situation
We will be posting a full testing schedule March 30th. This is the first year of administering this test and the testing schedule may have to be adjusted as we move through the testing window.
Parents will receive a testing notification letter the Friday before the week in which their child will be involved in testing. This letter will give specific dates and times for the testing, as well as a description of the tests students will be completing.
Please prepare your student for testing by ensuring that he/she gets a good night’s sleep, eats a good breakfast, and hears words of encouragement from family members.
Thank you for your partnership.
