Smarter Balanced seeks to develop a healthy and robust community of software and assessment organizations centered on the SmarterApp assessment platform. It is hoped that the platform will be used to benefit both Smarter Balanced member states and also other education and assessment organizations.
For Source Code, Smarter Balanced prefers the Educational Community License, Version 2.0 (ECL-2.0). However, due to the origins of certain components of the system, other licenses are also used. Components originating with the American Institutes for Research are released under the American Institutes for Research Open Source Software License. As components are posted in the SmarterApp source code repository, you are encouraged to check the respective licenses under which they are distributed.
