The Fact Sheets have been created using Version 3.0 of the Smarter Balanced Item Specifications.  The Fact Sheets describe the content covered for each Claim 1 Target on Smarter Balanced.  They include the Achievement Level Descriptors, construct-relevant vocabulary and allowable stimulus.  The Fact Sheets can be used by teachers to calibrate the rigor of their curriculum and instruction to the expectations on Smarter Balanced (Level 3 ALD represents the College and Career Readiness pathway).
