This specification defines the Data Dictionary and Logical Data Model for SmarterApp test results. This logical model is common for multiple data serialization formats including the Test Results Transmission Format the Data Warehouse Data Specification for Student Assessments and the Data Warehouse Data Specification for Item Level Data. The specification includes cross-references to these serialization formats and to the Common Education Data Standards.

Please consult the Change Log at the beginning of the document for a summary of changes in each update.

As of Fall 2018 the Smarter Balanced Test Delivery System (TDS) is no longer supported.
