Smarter Balanced and Higher Education: Preparing Young People for Postsecondary Success
Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium
The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is creating next-generation assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English language arts/literacy and mathematics. With more than 40 states implementing the CCSS, the Smarter Balanced assessment system will allow states to certify that students have the knowledge and skills to meet the requirements of entry-level, credit-bearing postsecondary courses in these key subject areas. The Smarter Balanced assessment system--including summative and interim assessments and formative resources for teachers--will measure progress toward college- and career-readiness, providing accurate information about what students know before entering college.
