In Spring 2014, California administered the Smarter Balanced Field Test (FT), which is the precursor of the new Smarter Balanced assessments. The FT was designed to help assure that the test items are fair, valid, and reliable. Because of this,
the California Department of Education will not be releasing the FT scores for 2013-14.
