  • Important Reminder for all Teachers and Test Administrators: please ensure that you choose the correct test type when you administer the Smarter Balanced Summative assessment this Spring.  There are now interim assessments listed in the Test Administration program as well, and these will be titled either “Interim – IAB” or “Interim – ICA”.  Please choose the “Summative assessment”, and then both the CAT and PT for your student’s grade level and content area.  If you have any questions about the tests that you should administer for the Smarter Balanced assessment, please contact the Montana Help Desk at 1-888-792-2741 or montanahelpdesk@measuredprogress.org.

  • Note: The Test Administrator Certification application is required to administer the Montana Smarter Balanced assessments.  If a school or district is planning to do the training as a group, each user should still log in to their account and complete the training.  The system will then automatically update the status to “completed” for the training, and the user will then be able to administer the assessment.
