In the 2014-15 school year, New Hampshire began rolling out new assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards. The new assessments are being used to gauge how well students are mastering the standards – and ultimately how ready students are for college and career education and training. In spring 2014, some schools participated in field-testing the new assessments to ensure that the new test items are free of bias and that they challenge students working at all performance levels. Between March 16, 2015. June 5, 2015 students in grades three-eight and grade eleven took the Smarter Balance Assessment Test.
