Smarter Balanced Assessment
Educator Communications Toolkit!
Across America, teachers are helping students meet the high expectations of college- and career-ready standards. In the coming school year, new assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards will give teachers new tools and better information to monitor student progress. This Communications Toolkit is intended to assist educators in communicating about the Smarter Balanced Assessment System.
Assessment Help Desk and Online Chat Feature!
SBAC Helpdesk support is available through phone, email, and live online chat. State, district and school personnel have access to a help desk agent through a live web chat feature during regular business hours, listed on the Help site.
Along with other Field Test resources, online chat will be found on the “Contact Us” section of the Field Test Portal. This provides another effective way to get the answers and assistance you may need quickly.
Remember, for the most immediate needs, the phone line still can provide the most rapid support.
