This Spring: New Smarter Balanced Assessments
Every year the state requires that students are assessed in core subject areas, starting in grade 3. You may be familiar with the MSP or HSPE – both of these tests have now been discontinued. So, what’s next? For the past four years, Washington State has been a leading partner in the multi-state Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium. The purpose of the Consortium was to develop new assessments that measure student performance on the new Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Math.

This spring our students in grades 3-8 and 11 will be taking new Smarter Balanced assessments online in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math. Tenth graders will take the ELA test only. Bellevue School District curriculum developers have been working for several years already to better align our curriculum and instruction to the new standards, and we are excited to launch into the new assessments this spring.

Somerset’s tentative testing schedule is as follows:
? 3rd grade: March 23, 24, 25 and June 1, 2, and 3
? 4th grade: May 6, 7, 8, 27, 28, and 29
? 5th grade: May 1, 4, 5, 11, 18, 19, and 20
Please note that the exact dates are subject to change and that as these are untimed tests, students may need additional days to complete the assessments.
