ITEM: Smarter Balanced Announcement: Scribing Protocol for Smarter Balanced Assessments

The Smarter Balanced Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guidelines include the use of a scribe as a designated support and accommodation. To assist state staff, test administrators, educators, and scribes in ensuring scribing is standardized and contributes to valid measures of students' college and career readiness, Smarter Balanced developed the Scribing Protocol for Smarter Balanced Assessments. The guide was developed with input from Smarter Balanced states, staff, and external experts.

The Scribing Protocol for Smarter Balanced Assessments may be accessed via the Smarter Balanced Field Test Portal here http://www.smarterbalanced.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Scribing-Protocol.pdf. The Scribing Protocol is also appended to the Implementation Guidelines that can be found here http://www.smarterbalanced.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Usability-Accessibility-and-Accomodations-Implementation-Guide.pdf.

Any questions or concerns from State Leads should be directed to Magda Chia at magda.chia at smarterbalanced.org<mailto:magda.chia at smarterbalanced.org>.
