Apply by June 25, 2012
The Bureau of Assessment and Accountability (BAA) would like to thank Michigan educators for the large number of applications submitted to participate in item writing this summer for the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC). Due to the larger than anticipated number of applicants, the item writing contractor, CTB/McGraw Hill, is currently in the process of reviewing applications and we anticipate that applicants will be notified by CTB/McGraw Hill regarding selection decisions shortly.
There are several additional opportunities that will be taking place in the upcoming months for Michigan educators to be involved in SBAC item development-related work. The BAA is pleased to announce the second of these opportunities, the opportunity to apply to be item reviewers. Specifically, the item review contractor, Measured Progress, is seeking applications for content reviewers, bias/sensitivity reviewers, and accessibility reviewers for 2013 SBAC English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics Common Core State Standards Pilot Testing.
If you have questions regarding this item review opportunity, please contact Erika Bolig, Michigan’s Teacher Involvement Coordinator for SBAC.
