Update on SBAC

 

Assessment news is constantly changing. Initially, the state planned to have students in grades third-eighth take either the math or the ELA SBAC field test in the spring. Here is the latest update from CDE:  “A sampling plan that meets the sample size and representative requirements of the consortium but will also allow for fuller testing in California is being implemented. Ninety-five percent of students will take a sampling of both ELA and mathematics items plus one performance task for each subject. The remaining five percent of students will take either ELA or math items plus one performance task for either subject.” I will keep you posted as more information becomes available.
