Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium
Disaggregated 2014 Field Test Data

The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) released results of its 2014 field testing on December 22, 2014. Results included projections of student performance on the assessments based on the field test demographic sample by content area, grade level and demographic groups as defined by No Child Left Behind.

Projections of student results are valid only for the Consortium as a whole and cannot be interpreted on a state-by-state basis. SBAC states are listed here.

Below is a comparison of the percent of all students and students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) performing at each of the following achievement levels:

Level 4 – Highest Level  – At Gr. 11 – Ready for credit-earning college work

Level 3 – At Gr. 11 — Ready for credit-earning college work if continues to progress in Gr. 12

Level 2 – Approaching readiness

Level 1 – Lowest Level
