Overview
Q: How can I administer an interim
assessment?
A: Interim tests are administered in the same way
as summative tests. The Test Administrator (TA)
must use the TA Interface (linked on
http://caaspp.org) and the student must log onto
the test through the secure browser.
2015 Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments: Part II
11
Overview
Q: How will the interim assessments be
scored?
A: Most responses are machine scored. All openended responses are hand scored by a TA
through the interim assessment hand scoring
module. The machine-scored results are held
until the open-ended portions of the test have
been hand scored and submitted. The results
are then combined to generate a student report.
