NOTE: Development on a new site for SmarterApp content is underway! With the new site, we will begin transitioning SmarterApp resources into an easier-to-use, accessible interface.

Only SmarterApp content updated in 2020 and after should be considered current and accurate. If you plan to use, are looking for specific information, or have any questions about content on this site, please contact us at

Accessibility Configuration File Specification
Date:  Nov 10, 2016
Document:  Click Here
Status:  Draft

The Accessibility Configuration File is shared among SmarterApp applications and provides a common description of the accessibility features. This allows changes to feature availability and policy without modifications to the assessment software other than the implementation of new features in the test delivery system. This specification defines the structure and content of the configuration file.

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.
