Sample Items and Performance Tasks

This webpage contains sample items and performance tasks from the Smarter Balanced assessment system in mathematics as well as English LA/Literacy. They are intended to help teachers, administrators, and policymakers implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) prepare for next-generation assessments and plan the required shifts in instruction. Sample items and tasks can be viewed by grade band (grades 3-5, 6-8, and high school) or content focus. They showcase the variety of item types, including technology-enhanced items and performance tasks, that will be included in the assessment system. A drop-down tab provides information on each item, including grade level, CCSS alignment, and a scoring rubric for performance tasks.
