Smarter Balanced is developing a secure, online reporting system that will provide assessment results to students, parents, teachers, and administrators. The reports—differentiated by audience—will show student achievement and progress toward college and career readiness as measured by the claims in English language arts/literacy and mathematics, which are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Information about the claims is available in the Smarter Balanced ELA/Literacy and Mathematics Content Specifications: http://www.smarterbalanced.org/smarter-balanced-assessments/.
Reports will likely provide more detailed information at the classroom and school level. For example, on the writing claim, it may be difficult to report sub-scores within writing—such as organization or style—at the student level, but it may be possible to do so across a larger number of students at classroom or school level.
