    What are Nevada's SBAC assessments?


    The Smarter Balanced assessments (SBAC) are a key part of measuring student progress in grades 3-8 towards success in college and career. The computer-adaptive format and online administration of the assessments provide meaningful feedback that teachers and parents can use to help students succeed. The SBAC test results help teachers support the needs of the students based off the test results. The assessments are aligned with the Nevada Academic Content Standards in ELA and mathematics.
