Understanding SBAC Test Results
Twin Rivers families and school staff will soon get the results of new computer-based assessments students took this spring. The district will mail them in late August. The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) exams measure student knowledge of California's English language arts and mathematics standards in grades 3-8 and 11. The exams are aligned to Common Core State Standards which set higher expectations for students.
Students will receive an overall score for each subject, ranging from 2,000 to 3,000. Overall scores will be reported within one of four levels: standard not met, standard nearly met, standard met, and standard exceeded.
Preparing for the release of family student score reports, the California Department of Education has posted a new video titled, "Understanding Your Child's Score Report." This video describes and explains the new 2015 Smarter Balanced Consortium Student Score Report.
In an effort to better serve our families and staff, we have complied a list of resources to gain greater understanding of SBAC. We also encourage families to contact their child's principal and teachers if they have any questions about test results.
