D91 Prepares For New State Assessments
Idaho Idaho State Department of Education is administering new assessments in Mathematics and English Language Arts that are aligned to the new Idaho Core Standards. The new Smarter Balanced Assessment or SBAC will replace the ISAT students usually take in math, reading and language in the spring. The state will field test this new test in Spring 2014, and then officially administer it in Spring 2015. The field test will give schools, teachers and students the chance to prepare for the SBAC.
