Standardized Testing


Smarter Balanced Statewide Assessment

Standardized tests will be online. Despite what you think, it’s not completely asinine. Want it in braille, audio, or large print? If you don’t set it up right, your kid will need to squint. Did you try to buy an embosser and an electronic display? If you did, your business manager probably started to sway. Have you questioned if your student has the right skills? You better start early because trying to catch up has no frills. In addition to thoroughly explaining the test, you’ll get a chance to see CSB at its best.
