About Smarter Balanced Digital Library Consortium
In mid-2014, the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium will release its digital resources library. The goal of this on-line bank of resources is to provide educators with professional development materials and instructional resources aligned to the Common Core State Standards and the Smarter Balanced assessment system. Also included will be formative assessment item banks, and web-based data and reporting tools for the Smarter Balanced summative and interim assessments. CREC is seeking districts interested in developing a regional consortium to learn collaboratively about these tools once they are released. CREC facilitators will lead the vetting of on-line resources, including reviews of formative assessment items. CREC experts will also offer districts assistance in generating and reviewing data reports on student performance for both formative and summative Smarter Balanced assessments.
