below you will find a link to preview and take a practice test
in smarter balance(grades 3-5). We are encouraging you to take a look. We
will have the students take the practice test during computer class in
March, but think that you could get a better idea of what they are
expecting of the students by reviewing it also.
Go to the middle of the page where it says click here to take test. click
sign in. You will be able to take a look at the math and reading smarter
balance test and also some practice performance tasks.
