The Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments are designed to support teaching and learning throughout the year. Districts may establish the time frame, administration policies, and scoring practices for interim assessments. The interim assessments also include all of the accessibility resources that are available in the summative assessment to provide accurate results for all students.
Below are several resources to help educators better understand the interim assessments, how to access them and how to use them.
