Smarter Balanced Tests

Subjects included in the Common Core State Standards (English language arts and math) will be assessed using the Smarter Balanced system as of the 2014-2015 school year.

In grades 3-8, students take Smarter Balanced tests and MSP for federal accountability. Student scores on these tests determine a school’s adequate yearly progress (AYP) status.

The testing window runs from March-June. Classroom teachers will notify families of specific testing dates.You can find more information on state testing on the Lake Washington School District Website.
