Smarter Balanced has posted one new specification and two sets of sample data on SmarterApp.org:
- Test Results - Data Dictionary and Logical Data Model is a new specification that describes SmarterApp test results at a logical data model layer. It’s helpful for cross referencing with state data models and with data transmission formats. Includes cross references to SmarterApp data formats and Common Education Data Standards.
- The Implementation Readiness Test Packages are a set of test packages to support development and testing of test delivery systems. The packages include samples of all SmarterApp item types including machine scoring rubrics for all machine-scored items. The samples include test packages for computer-adaptive tests and fixed-form performance tasks.
- The Sample Test Results in TRT Format are a set of simulated student test results in Test Results Transmission Format. They are suitable for development and testing of data conversion, import, analytics, and reporting systems.
