Schools test new, electronic student assessments

The schools in El Dorado County are finishing their trial runs of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) testing, which will gauge student progress toward meeting the Common Core State Standards and be fully implemented in spring 2015. Testing began in March and includes students piloting the electronic system, teachers and administrators evaluating exam procedures and training materials and information technology professionals reviewing the software and identifying potential technical issues to proactively address and remedy them. This testing period also allows schools to ensure that these critical-thinking and problem-solving assessments are accurate and fair for the students. More than 4 million students have participated in the field tests statewide.
