Important Information about the SBAC

Students in Oregon take state tests in English language arts and math, called Smarter Balanced their junior year of high school. We know that an end-of-the-year test cannot possibly tell us everything about your child’s academic progress. However, the results do act as a snapshot of your child’s strengths and areas for improvement and can be used as a way to ensure he or she is getting the supports he or she needs

For high school students, it is a graduation requirement to meet essential skills in English language arts and math. Should a student opt out of taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment, the student will need to meet these essential skills by completing and passing multiple work samples for language arts and math.
