This is a final report of the Alignment Study conducted by HumRRO under subcontract with CTB. The goal of this project was to gather evidence to examine the validity of Smarter Balanced summative assessments in terms of their alignment to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

As of Fall 2018 the Smarter Balanced Test Delivery System (TDS) is no longer supported.

The code base and documentation for the TDS is available within the Smarter Balanced GitHub repository.
