The Executive Director of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Joe Wilhoft, moves educators through the coming assessment at the National Summit on Education Reform (minute 11:55). He notes that about 30% of a teacher’s time is spent working on assessment and SBAC will assist with this work by providing free professional development resources.
Wilhoft moves participants through the SBAC Claims and the Depth of Knowledge at which the SBAC questions will be asked. He shares some samples and explains a bit about the assessment design. Review the entire speech here and the PowerPoint here.
