Digital Library

The formative assessment process is key to a balanced assessment system. The Smarter Balanced Digital Library supports educators with the four attributes of formative assessment learning: (1) Clarify Intended Learning; (2) Elicit Evidence; (3) Interpret Evidence; and (4) Act on Evidence. The Digital Library provides subject- and grade-specific resources that help educators apply the formative assessment process during daily instruction.

The Digital Library is an online collection of resources aligned to the California State Standards/Common Core State Standards and that support K–12 teachers in their use of the formative assessment processes to adjust teaching to improve student learning. These resources include commissioned, interactive assessment literacy and exemplar instructional modules on English–language arts and mathematics. The library has collaboration features that allow users to rate materials and share their expertise with educators across the country.
