Language supports for English learners ready for smarter balanced field tests
from Education Week
In the coming weeks, thousands of students across the country will be sitting down to test drive the new Common Core aligned assessments in reading and English/language arts. And for many students who are English language learners, the tests they encounter could be a whole lot different from what they are accustomed to seeing on their state assessments. That's why the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium has made training tests available on its website so that students, teachers and even parents can get a chance to experiment with the language-support features before field testing actually gets underway.
