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 Dahlia Heights is a small school with many outstanding teachers and involved parents. The PTA works hard to raise money to support the school and advocate on behalf of children. Dahlia is a School for Advanced Studies, which means that students who live outside of its boundaries may apply to attend Dahlia Heights (see details on LAUSD or Dahlia's website). It is a creative place dedicated to the arts and environmental studies. Kids participate in special programs with professional arts groups like L.A. Opera, 24th Street Theater, Story Pirates, etc. Students also participate in a gardening program, recycling program, and Earth Day. Students get many opportunities to polish their speaking skills and to develop leadership abilities. My kid has learned how to be a good student and has improved her leadership skills over the years.

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.
