Welcome, Smarter Balanced!

This page provides information for the Smarter Balanced Assessment System.



    Due to the temporary closure of schools, all summative tests have been removed from our interfaces for security purposes. OPI is in the process of submitting a one-year waiver to waive assessment and accountability requirements for the 19-20 school year, and all summative testing will be considered suspended until further notice.

  • Chrome Version 72 Now Supported

    Google released a new dot version of ChromeOS v72, version 72.0.3626.119. CAI has confirmed this version resolved the previously identified issue that prevented users from accessing CAI testing sites. If your school had already upgraded to v72, please ensure you upgrade to this or a later dot version of 72. If your school has not upgraded to v72, you may do so at your discretion, ensuring you upgrade to this or a later dot version of 72.

  • Chrome Version 72 – Unable to Access CAI Testing Sites

    Google released a new Chrome version on Friday and CAI has identified an issue with Chrome version 72 that prevents users from accessing CAI testing sites. Google and CAI are currently working on a fix. Chromebooks on ChromeOS v71 or earlier are not affected. If you are on a version of ChromeOS earlier than 72, do not upgrade your devices to ChromeOS v72. It is also recommended that you turn off auto-updates to prevent this upgrade before a fix is identified.

    If your district has already upgraded devices to Chrome version 72, another platform will need to be used to test until a fix is released. Once the fix is released by Google and CAI confirms that this issue is resolved, we will post notification that users may upgrade to 72.
