Compare/Contrast tests: Common Core (SBAC) and ISAT

How does the new Common Core testing compare/contrast to the previously used ISAT testing? Below are two links to sample each type of test. I have not yet tried them myself, but wanted to make them available to BlaineParents readers. I’ll be trying my hand at them later today.

ISAT: Idaho Standards Achievement Test

SBAC: Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium

After trying them both, what did you think? Which test better assesses a student’s grasp of material studied?

My thanks to Trustee Liz Schwerdtle for making me aware of these links.
