The Smarter Balanced Assessment System will replace existing statewide assessments in mathematics, reading, and writing (the NECAP) and offer significant improvements over assessments of the past. These new assessments will be administered online and will adapt to each student’s ability, giving teachers and parents better information to help students succeed. The window for taking the test is the last 12 weeks of school. More information will be shared before the testing window. The NH Department of Education has an FAQ sheet if you would like more information.
