Notice on Interim Assessments

Beginning either this week or in early March, Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments will be utilized in each school, typically with a small group of students during an intervention period in Grades 3-8.  Interim assessments will be administered in either English Language Arts/Literacy or Mathematics and are intended to focus on smaller sets of related concepts. The rapid feedback available for teachers will provide them with detailed information for instructional purposes.
