  • Smarter Balanced Assessments – The Summative Assessments, Interim Assessments, and Digital Library are all part of the CAASPP System.

    • Summative Assessments – In grades 3 through 8 and 11 for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics. The Summative Assessments are administered as part of the CAASPP System.

    • Digital Library – Consists of tools and practices designed to help teachers utilize formative assessment processes for improved teaching and learning in all grades. These optional resources are available to all K–12 teachers.
