The work of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is guided by the belief that a high-quality assessment system can provide information and tools for teachers and schools to improve instruction and help students succeed – regardless of disability, language or subgroup. The development of the assessment has and will continue to involve experienced educators, researchers, state and local policymakers and community groups working together in a transparent and consensus-driven process.
