The California Department of Education’s (CDE’s) Interim Assessment Video Series offers a great way to learn about the Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments. The series acquaints viewers with the online systems that are used to view, administer, score, and report the interim assessments. Five modules are included, each ranging from approximately three to ten minutes in length. Most of the modules are accompanied by a video demonstration that shows, step by step, the features of the system. The modules are as follows:

  • Module 1: Introducing the Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments
  • Module 2: Interim Assessment Viewing System
  • Module 3: Administering the Interim Assessments
  • Module 4: Interim Assessment Hand Scoring System
  • Module 5: Interim Assessment Reporting System

Modules one through four have just been updated, and module five will be updated next month. Check out these modules today! They can be found on the CDE’s Smarter Balanced Interim Assessment Video Series web page.
