Estimated Testing Time

Smarter Balanced year-end summative assessments are not timed. Students may take as much time as they need to complete the tests. The table below is a guideline developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium to help approximate how much time most students will need in order to finish.

Testing will occur in multiple sessions, so students will typically spend one to two hours per day on the assessments over several days.

It’s important to remember that Smarter Balanced assesses writing at every grade level.
