Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for ELA and Mathematics Are Now Available
ELPAC email update, February 22, 2021.
Dear LEA CAASPP Coordinator:
The Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics are now available for administration within the local educational agency's (LEA's) selected test administration window.
The adjusted forms for the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for ELA and mathematics are available for online test administration. The blueprints for all other CAASPP assessments remain unchanged.
The computer adaptive test portion of the Smarter Balanced blueprints have been reduced by approximately 50 percent in each claim. The adjusted forms reduce the overall testing time for each content area.
Detailed blueprints from Smarter Balanced are now available on the Test Development web page of the Smarter Content Explorer website . Revised estimated testing times are available on the Spring Administration Information for Educators website as well as in the Online Test Administration Manual .
Questions regarding the Smarter Balanced adjusted forms for the 2020–21 CAASPP administration should be directed to CalTAC, by phone at 800-955-2954 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
