Districts report positive experiences with Smarter Balanced Field Test

Results are in from a survey sent to districts that administered the Smarter Balanced Field Test this spring. More than 350 educators involved in test administration provided feedback about their experiences.

“We really appreciate this feedback,” said Secretary of Education Melody Schopp. “Districts worked very hard to make the field test a success, and we at the department are now focused on making sure next year’s fully operational test goes even better.”
