About the Smarter Balanced Assessments: The Smarter Balanced Assessment System has three components: the Summative Assessments, designed for accountability purposes; Interim Assessments, designed to support teaching and learning throughout the year; and the Digital Library, designed to support classroom-based formative assessment processes. The Smarter Balanced Assessment Graphic (PDF) and Smarter Balanced Assessment System Video (2:57) displays the relationship between these components, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and college and career readiness.

The Summative Assessments are comprehensive end of year assessments of grade-level learning that measure progress toward college and career readiness. Each test, English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics is comprised of two parts: (1) a computer adaptive test and (2) a performance task, administered within a 12-week window beginning at 66 percent of the instructional year for grades 3 through 8, or within in a 7-week window beginning at 80 percent of the instructional year for grade 11.

The Summative Assessments are aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics. The tests capitalize on the strengths of computer adaptive testing—efficient and precise measurement across the full range of achievement and timely turnaround of results.

Open Quote Unfortunately, WHS has an undeserved good reputation. Try to ask about the criteria for its high rankings. You won't get a specific answer and a lot of attitude that you dared to ask. The environment both academic & social is rife with classism, the school has an offensive and racist mascot, and has a de facto two-tiered extra curricular environment; if you can't afford to pay, you don't get to participate (and they are in deep denial about it—the less income you have the more pressure put on you to quit). Booster clubs are notorious for acting like creditors demanding payment and treating lesser income families like criminals and cheats. Teachers are nearly inaccessible to students and parents, use of 21st technologies are discouraged and restricted, and information from teachers and the administration in general comes at a substantial cost in time and energy investment for very little return. A lot of elitist attitudes, snobbery and bullying among students. Incredible peer pressure and social stigmatization within the student body and seriously dysfunctional administrative and parent denial. Their academic system does not prepare a lower class student for college systems, while supporting and rewarding upper class privilege. If you are upper class and look like it, you'll have a great experience. If you're a square peg or lower income, this round-hole school is a nightmare. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
