Status:  Release

The Adaptive Algorithm describes how assessment items are selected to present to students during the administration of a Computer Adaptive Test. This preview release should be considered in conjunction with the Smarter Balanced Test Blueprints

A detail remaining to be added before is rules that govern inclusion of blueprint-aligned items from up to two grade levels below or above grade level for substantially low- and high-performing students, respectively. The rules will still require the assessment to follow an on-grade blueprint, and will not increase overall test length.
