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

SmarterApp Web Diagnostic API
Date:  Feb 16, 2017
Document:  Click Here
Status:  Release

A common API for diagnostics of SmarterApp web applications. The API is used to assure that installation is correct, that configuration is valid, that the system is operational, and that all communication channels are functioning properly. When a diagnostic fails, it offers details that help systems administrators quickly diagnose and correct problems. The diagnostic API is also an appropriate endpoint for monitoring and alerting systems.

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.
