OSPI releases preliminary Smarter Balanced Assessment data 

The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) released preliminary state-level data on Thursday, July 2, to show performance by Washington students on Smarter Balanced tests administered during the spring testing window that ended June 15. The results are based on the roughly 90 percent of scores returned so far. As test scoring continues, OSPI will update results. Return rates vary by district, grade level and content area, so comparisons must await the completion of all scoring.

Scores are looking better than expected statewide, compared to field test results from last year. However, it is important to note that the preliminary results do not factor in student refusals. Proficiency rates will drop when refusals are included. OSPI will release test refusal numbers, by grade level and content area for each school district, on July 9.

OSPI data release dates:

  • Thursday, July 2: Release of preliminary statewide Smarter Balanced proficiency rates
  • Thursday, July 9: Release of test refusal numbers by grade level and content area for each school district
  • Monday, August 17: Release of results for all spring 2015 state tests, including district level and school level test results.

Individual student test scores will be available districtwide in early September.
