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

Digital Library Technical Systems Documentation
Date:  Jan 17, 2015
Document:  Click Here
Status:  Release
Version:  Rel 1.35, Ver 1.4

This document outlines the infrastructure, technology, and data model used to develop the Digital Library as of Release 1.35 (released to production on 08/01/14). This incorporates the updates as of the end of December 2014.

Smarter Balanced will continue to host the digital library on behalf of member states so the primary purpose of this posting is for other organizations who wish to launch their own digital library.

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.
