Combined
Times are estimates of test length for most students. Smarter Balanced assessments are designed as
untimed tests; some students may need and should be afforded more time than shown in this table.
Technology Readiness
• Technology Readiness Tool (TRT)
• Used to determine which schools
and/or grades will require a paper
assessment in the first year (Spring
2015)
• EduTech supporting TRT project
• Participation needed from all districts
Practice Test
• Available online at www.smarterbalanced.org
• Grades 3–8 and 11
• Follows a test blueprint similar to the
blueprint intended for the operational test,
making the Practice Test experience an
abbreviated but similar experience to the
assessment in 2015
• Afford teachers, administrators, and parents
access to items planned and designed for the
Smarter Balanced assessment
Practice Test
• Resources and Documentation
– Manuals and User Guides
– Classroom Activities
– Scoring Guides
• Accommodations
– Braille
– Text to speech
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
• American Sign Language translation and other accommodation
and accessibility tools.
