2017 Smarter Balanced Assessment

The Connecticut Department of Education (CSDE) revised their Smarter Balanced Assessment Reports. The report will now present two years of scores, comparing them side by side. CSDE made this change to emphasize a criterion-referenced interpretation for both achievement (i.e., how did my child perform relative to the achievement expectations) and growth (i.e., how did my child’s performance change from one year to the next).  As in past years, the report retains the normative data (i.e., district and school averages) in order to provide parents with an additional reference.

Click here to view samples of the report for English/Language Arts and Mathematics.

To assist parents with the interpretation of this Smarter Balanced report, the CSDE has created brief videos that are available in both English and Spanish. Those have been posted for your convenience.
