On Monday, April 27, Coos Bay Public Schools invite parents and community members to join them for the Regional Smarter Balance Parent Night. This region-wide event will be an introduction and round table discussion about the Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium (SBAC) student tests and how they differ from our old tests.
Last month, students in Oregon started taking the new Smarter Balanced assessment. This marked a huge milestone in a multi-year process that began with Oregon’s adoption of the Common Core back in 2010. The new test mirrors the rich instruction going on in Oregon classrooms with questions that ask our students to explain, describe, analyze, and reflect. It is, without a doubt, a better test than our previous fill-in-the-bubble assessment and will provide us with valuable information about what students know and can do. This feedback on student learning will help us to identify gaps as early as third grade, adjust instruction as needed, measure the growth in student learning over time, and target efforts and resources to where they are needed most. – Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction Rob Saxton
