Peninsula School District students in grades 3-8 and selected 9th graders will participate in the Smarter Balanced Assessment Field Test this spring. Participation is confidential, and there will be no impact on your child’s grades.
This is a very exciting opportunity for our District. Students will be able to try out new, online testing software and innovative question types that will be very similar on future Smarter Balanced assessments. By participating in the field test, your child will be influencing the development of future Smarter Balanced assessments used in our schools.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s participation, please contact your school.
