As part of our learning module on the shifts and implications involved with the change to the Common Core State Standards, I am including some links to additional information regarding the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium or SBAC. This new assessment is a huge leap forward in measuring students progress toward being ready for the rigor of College or a Career.
This is the main web site for the SBAC and provide you with a wealth of information as well as sample assessments and problems.
This is a California Department of Education(CDE) resource page
This is a look at resources from Missouri, including examples of performance tasks. One great advantage of the CCSS and the SBAC is that they are not exclusive to CA. so many more resources are available.
