Smarter Balanced Assessments Resources

At LAUSD, our focus is on graduating all students college-prepared and career-ready. To help achieve that goal, California is one of many states that transitioned to new assessments called the Smarter Balanced Assessments.

The Smarter Balanced Assessments are new, next-generation assessments that will measure the full understanding of the Common Core State Standards in math and English language arts/literacy for students in grades 3-8 and grade 11.

The results of these new assessments will be setting a new baseline for progress and achievement -- let’s learn, grow and adapt together.
