Beginning a Higher Trajectory:

Grade 11 Study

This report is the latest in a series on high-quality summative student assessments. In our preceding two reports, The Right Trajectory and Still the Right Trajectory, we examined the grade 5 assessments previously used by individual states and compared them with the two consortia  assessments.

In this report,  we convened a panel of twelve outstanding educators to examine the Smarter Balanced (SBAC) grade 11 assessment. The expert panel examined only the Smarter Balanced grade 11 assessment because there were no previous state assessments that could be used for comparisons.


These educators found many things to like about the assessment, and they made recommendations for continuous improvement.
