Smarter Balanced Assessment System
The Smarter Balanced Assessment System has three components: summative assessments, designed for accountability purposes; interim assessments, designed to support teaching and learning throughout the year; and formative assessment processes, supported by professional learning and instructional resources in the Digital Library.
This Smarter Balanced Assessment Graphic (below) displays the relationship between these components, the Common Core State Standards, and college and career readiness.
