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 My daughter is in her second year of high school at Will C. Wood. Her teachers are dedicated to the success of their students. Being challenged in XL coursework keeps my daughter interested and gives her satisfaction in her accomplishments. Teachers get to know their students through classes and the many extra curricular activities they supervise. Very well-rounded educational experience with excellent choir, music, & theater electives in addition to standard California high school offerings. 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.
