Statement on Smarter Balanced Membership Ruling

Wed, 02/25/2015 - 03:15

This lawsuit deals with our membership in the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium of states that are working together to create common tests. It does not impact the use of the tests themselves. We do not expect this to impact the administration of statewide tests this spring.

The Department’s General Counsel is reviewing the ruling and considering our legal options.
