Session Description

The Smarter Balance test is used to test students to determine if they are college and career ready. What are the skills that a student must have to be college and career ready and how do we teach those skills? This workshop will show what, and more importantly, how those skills are assessed using examples from the test. See how classroom instruction can be matched to these skills so that our students will be college and career ready!
