SMARTER Balanced Assessment

As a member of the SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium, Vermont has joined with 27 other states to develop the next generation of educational tests for English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics. SMARTER Balanced will be fully aligned with the Common Core State Standards, use state of the art Computer Adaptive Testing and accessibility technologies, and will provide a continuum of summative, interim and formative tools that can be used for a variety of educational purposes. The New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) will no longer be offered in Vermont.  For more detailed information, visit the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium website.
