Educator Involvement Opportunities
The OSPI English Language Arts Assessment Office is working with the Smarter
Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) to select and review reading and listening
stimuli for future item development.
Selected participants will collaborate with OSPI mentors and other Washington
State educators to select or to review passages for Reading and Listening for
the ELA portion of the Smarter Balanced Assessment for grades 3-8 and 11. While
you may apply for both opportunities, you will only be selected for one. At this
time, we are accepting applications for Stimulus Selection Committee. A separate
application for Stimulus Review will be available in the next few weeks. Please
