A core principle of the Smarter Balanced system is accessibility for students who take the test.
Accessibility resources provided on Smarter Balanced assessments ensure equitable access for students with diverse accessibility needs and preferences.
Smarter Balanced tests are designed so that students who take them—including students who are learning English or have special needs—can participate in the tests meaningfully and demonstrate what they know and can do.
As a result, our end-of-year test includes accessibility resources that address visual, auditory, and physical access barriers—allowing virtually all students to show what they know and can do without compromising the assessment construct.
