The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (Smarter Balanced or SBAC) is a state-led organization that has developed next-generation assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) to accurately measure student progress toward college- and career-readiness.  The work of Smarter Balanced is guided by the belief that a high-quality assessment system will provide information and tools for teachers and schools to improve instruction and help students succeed – regardless of disability, language or subgroup.
