Evaluation Reports for the 2015 Release of the Open Source Test Delivery System
Date:  Sep 2, 2016
Document:  Click Here
Version:  1

These three reports are an evaluation of the open source Test Delivery System (TDS) released by Smarter Balanced in 2015 as compared with the requirements of the RFP. Fairway Technologies produced these reports under a competitive bid contract with Smarter Balanced.

The development of the 2016 release of the TDS software has been informed by these evaluations and it includes substantial improvements in all three areas.

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.
