• SBAC TESTING OVERVIEW

    What?

    An assessment that replaces the CST/STAR exam, combined with the EAP test, which is taken on a computer. The scores are performanced based and will be computer adaptive, which means students are challenged with questions beyond their abilities.  The test gets harder if studnets answer questions correctly and easier if they answer incorrectly – it adjusts to each students’ knowledge.  Students may get questions not covered in the classroom – that’s ok!  We are all in this together to BE THE BEST AT GETTING BETTER!  There are a variety of questions on the assessment: selected response, short constructed response, and extended constructed response.
