New Resources

Technology Readiness Calculator Released for Local Educational Agencies

Smarter Balanced has released its Web-based Technology Readiness Calculator to help schools estimate the number of days it will take to administer the Smarter Balanced summative assessments on the basis of: the number of students to be tested, the number of computers available, and the number of hours per day that each computer is available during the testing window. The Technology Readiness Calculator may be accessed from the California Department of Education (CDE) Smarter Balanced Technology Readiness Tool Web page. [The Technology Readiness Tool is now closed.]
