How did your school do on the SBAC test?

See how your school and school district performed on last spring’s standardized English and math tests, which are formally known as the Smarter Balanced Assessments.

The side-by-side columns allow you to compare your school or district with others or with statewide averages. School districts are listed first followed by individual schools.

After that are two tables that allow you to search for your school or district and see what proportion of students passed the exam compared to the prior year. Only two years of data are available since this test is relatively new.

Read the story about these results here.

Note: Only students in Grades 3 through 8 took these exams. High school students no longer take the Smarter Balanced exam because the state now uses the SAT to measure school and district progress. (See how your school did on that exam here.)

Note: Due to a joining error, an earlier version of the scores above did not reflect the correct changes ELA and Math score changes for the following school districts: Lebanon, Litchfield, Manchester, Mansfield, Marlborough, Meriden, Middletown, and Milford
