Status:  Draft
Version:  0.2

SmarterApp Assessment Item Format assessment items are scored using rubrics encoded in IMS QTI Response Processing Format. Custom operators, defined in this document, support scoring of advanced item types such as Equations, and Graphic Response Items.

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.
