SMARTER BALANCED ASSESSMENT FIELD TEST
This spring, students throughout California will be field testing a new assessment called the Smarter Balanced Assessment. The majority of the STAR testing program has been eliminated. Field testing of the assessment will help ensure that test items are accessible to all students and produce results that are valid, reliable, and fair.
This spring’s 2014 Field Test will be fully computer-based. Participation in the Field Test will give students, teachers, and administrators valuable exposure to the future assessment system. In order to best prepare Cornell students for the Field Test, teachers have introduced the use of Chromebook computers into our 2nd-5th grade classrooms to support their learning and prepare them for the upcoming assessment.
We encourage you to consider how you might support your children with this transition at home. Practicing typing and other computational skills can provide students with exposure that will support them on the Field Test. All of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students have an account with a typing app that they can use to practice at home. The URL for the typing app is: albanyusd.typingclub.com. Students will need to log in with their AUSD email account and password to access the program. Your child should know their login information, and you can also contact your child’s teacher for to get the information.
