Recent Announcements

  • Test and technology coordinators at schools using Macs for Smarter Balanced testing should not update their test devices to Mac OS High Sierra, as the Secure Browser will not work with this OS.  Test coordinators should immediately inform their technology coordinators and teachers using Macs for administering either the summative or interim assessments that they should not update their operating system, otherwise, the current secure browser will not work.  An announcement will be made through the Assessment News when an updated, compatible browser is available. REMINDER: Operating systems that become available but do not appear on the Supported Browsers page on the portal are not supported. Do not upgrade to new operating systems on computers that will be used to administer online assessments without ensuring the updates meet the required specifications.

  • The Smarter Balanced and HSA Science Parent Information Booklets (PIBs) are currently available in English and 14 translated languages and can be found in the General Information folder on the Resources page. Printed PIBs will be shipped and delivered to each school the week of September 18th. Each student’s home language in Infinite Campus has been used to determine whether a student will receive either an English PIB or a translated PIB in the home language indicated by their family. Please make sure the students receive either the English or translated PIB that they need. If your school does not receive their shipment of PIBs by September 29th, please contact the Help Desk.
