Smarter Balance Field Test Replacing STAR Tests


Thursday, February 27, 2014

California students will take the Smarter Balanced field test this spring in lieu of STAR tests. At the Santa Barbara Unified School District, 3rd-8th graders and 11th graders will take the new computerized tests sometime between April 7 and May 16.
