Assessment Information:
Delaware officially joined and is currently a governing state in the SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC).

SBAC: http://www.smarterbalanced.org/about/member-states/#delaware

2011-2012 - DCAS will assess existing DE Prioritized Standards in ELA and Math and the CCSS that are content and grade-level matched, and continue field testing items that will be coded to Common Core. Field testing for ALL GRADES (3-10) items aligned with the Common Core will begin.

2012-2013 - DCAS will continue to field test and will begin to assess CCSS in ELA and Math for grades 3-10.

2013-2014 - DCAS will approach full alignment with the Common Core for grades 3-10.

More Information:

School districts in Delaware have been given latitude to work locally on plans to implement the new standards, with some schools leading the way and others taking more time, but all have pledged to adopt the new standards by 2014.
