More Smarter Balanced Test Practice


Smarter Balanced Test Practice  Today I would like to to simulate for you the process by which you will be taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment on Monday. I will provide each of you with a student ID #, a session ID #, and we will be logging on using a 'Secure Browser.' If for some reason, the Secure Browser is not yet installed on your computer, you can access the practice test online here. I will preview some of the types of questions that you are likely to see on the assessment, and allow to independently explore the practice test. 

Homework  (1.) Read your A.R. book at home for at least 30 minutes and, if you choose, make a reading log entry using the Digital Reading Log. (Remember you must have made at least one entry by the end of the day Friday.) (2.) Complete the Using Text Evidence Practice Activity, which is due tomorrow, Friday, April 8. (3.) Make sure you completed the Write an Argument Essay: The Hook and Issue Summary (Steps 5 & 6) document, which was due today
