SBAC Digital Library

SBAC Digital Library - What is it?

The Digital Library is a critical component of the Smarter Balanced system of assessments and will include a variety of resources to help teachers support day-to-day teaching and learning. The Digital Library offers professional learning resources and instructional materials—like lesson plans, units, and learning modules—for educators to use daily with students and staff.  The Digital Library is paid for by California’s subscription to the Smarter Balanced Assessment System, so access to the Digital Library is completely free for every school district and their employees.
