Item Slide Shows

The Item Slide Shows have been created using Version 3.0 of the Smarter Balanced Item Specifications.  The Item Slide Shows convert all example stems from the Item Specifications into student and teacher-friendly slides that can be used in the classroom.  Ideas for use include printing slides as full page station or relay activities, using individual items as formative assessments or as a tool for spiral review or Smarter Balanced prep in the Spring.
