Two great resources to help families better understand Smarter Balanced test scores

Every year, parents receive their child’s score report at home. Now what? We’ve got two great resources to help families understand better what it all means, especially with the new Smarter Balanced assessments.

First, download our infographic and watch the accompanying video on charting a student’s path from middle to high school. Second, see the new Washington Test Guide, brought to you by our partners, GreatKids. It’s available in English and Spanish and provides you information on how to help your child in school and what questions to ask his or her teacher.
