Smarter Balanced Assessment – Information and Resources
As you may know, the NH Department of Education recently released the scores of the Smarter Balanced assessment, which is the new statewide assessment that was introduced last spring. Information has been sent home to families of students who took the assessment last year, but the following resources may be helpful if there are questions about the assessment or the results. The information also suggests steps families can take to help ensure our students continue to progress and learn the necessary skills to become prepared for college and career.
