Common Core / SBAC / NGSS

Derby High School administered the SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium) Field Test to Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors during the spring of 2014.

The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is in the process of developing a system of assessments for English language arts/literacy and mathematics for Grade 11 for the 2014-2015 school year. These assessments will replace the former CAPT test and are aligned to Common Core State Standards. Read more from the Connecticut State Department of Education.
