Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC)
The Connecticut Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBAC) are aligned to Connecticut Core State Standards in English language arts/literacy and mathematics.
Every May, students in grades 3-8, will be taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBAC) in mathematics and English language arts/literacy. This is the state mandated test that replaces the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) in those areas. The assessment will be taken on a computer and will be untimed. Students will work at their own pace to complete each segment of the assessment. The assessment has been given since the spring of 2015.
