    Smarter Balanced Assessment

    The Smarter Balanced Assessment is the test we use in Washington State to measure student achievement in math and English language arts. All students in grades 3, 4, and 5 take the test online during school. The assessment will measure critical thinking with questions that ask students to demonstrate their research, writing, and problem solving skills in both math and English language arts.

    Testing Times and Breaks:

    Typically students will start the test around 9:30 a.m. and finish within 2-3 hours. However, assessments are untimed and students can take breaks as needed. Students may bring snacks to eat during their breaks. Please make sure your student is on time and well rested.
