Student Participation

  • Q: Who will take the online Smarter Balanced summative assessments?
  • A: All students in grades 3–8 and 11 are required to take the summative assessments.

Student Participation: Early Assessment Program

  • The Early Assessment Program (EAP) will be using the grade 11 Smarter Balanced summative assessments in English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics in place of the grade 11 CSTs in ELA and/or mathematics, additional 15 test questions and the ELA essay
  • Grade 11 students taking the Smarter Balanced summative assessments may choose to release their test results to the California State University (CSU) and participating California Community Colleges (CCC) at the end of the computer adaptive tests
  • Students who do not authorize the release of their test results at the time of testing may need to provide a copy of the score report upon request of the campus.

Student Participation (cont.)

      • The only students exempt from participating in the Smarter Balanced summative assessments are:
        • Students participating in the California Alternate Assessments (CAA) in English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics
        • English learners (ELs) who have been attending school in the United States for less than 12 months (for the ELA test only)

About the Summative Assessments

  • Content areas:
    • English language arts/literacy (ELA)
    • Mathematics
  • Two components per content area:
    • Computer adaptive test (CAT)
    • Performance task (PT)

About the Summative Assessments (cont.)

  • Q: What is the CAT component of the online summative assessment?
  • A: The computer adaptive portion of the online test includes a wide variety of item types. As students progress throughout a CAT, the computer program adjusts the difficulty of questions throughout the assessment based on their responses. For example, a student who answers a question correctly will receive a more challenging item, while an incorrect answer generates an easier question.

About the Summative Assessments (cont.)

  • Q: What is the PT component of the online summative assessment?
  • A: The PT is designed to provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate their ability to apply their knowledge and higher-order thinking skills to explore and analyze a complex, real-world scenario. Prior to the PT, teachers or instructional staff conduct a Classroom Activity for all students to ensure that a lack of understanding of the context of the task does not interfere with a student’s ability to address the content of the task.
