Smarter Balance

The Smarter Balanced Consortium is a nationwide consortium of states committed to national standards in public education and to interfacing public with higher education in an effort to reduce the need for remediation at the post-secondary level. This common core will now be a focus of WV public education, and the assessment tools and measures that will be designed will be adopted in WV in lieu of the WESTEST, the 11th grade assessment that now determines whether students go into literacy remediation courses in Math and English in their senior year of high school. In theory,
the new system will reduce the need for post-secondary developmental courses and increase college readiness among graduating
high school seniors. By 2014-15, the Smarter Balanced National Assessments will be completed and used across the country.
