There are three assessment components to Smarter Balanced: A computer-adaptive test, a classroom activity, and a performance task.
On average, the assessments are expected to last a combined 7 hours for grades 3-5. The test is not timed; students will be given appropriate time to answer all questions. The tests can be administered over several days.

These are only a preview, and do not encompass the full range of content that students may encounter. Also, they are presented in a “fixed form” (i.e., not computer adaptive) and users will not receive reports or scores. The practice tests are available at:
