* State reported on percentage of items/tasks on assessment, instead of percentage of assessment points.

Note: For states with computer-adaptive testing, a range of percentages are reported per item type since the assessment varies by student.
Smarter Balanced assessments use short-answer​​ responses with performance tasks (PT)

Definitions: Mathematics and Science Assessment Types of Items

  1. Multiple choice, single correct response – This item type provides a list of answer options for students to choose, and students can only select one option.
  2. Multiple choice, multiple correct responses – This item type provides a list of answer options for students to choose, and students select one or more options.
  3. Matching tables – This item type displays a table that students complete by matching options to statements, figures, or other stimuli.
  4. Drag and drop – This item type provides objects that students place or move to provide an answer.
  5. Table Fill In – This item type presents a partially completed table that students complete by typing in their answers in the empty cells in the table.
  6. Gridded response – This item type requires students to fill in their answers on response grids. The answers may be whole numbers, decimals, or fractions.
  7. Graphing –This item type provides a coordinate grid and students are to create an answer on the grid, possibly using a number of tools (e.g., Connect Line, Add Point)
  8. Equation/Numeric – This item type provides a numeric keypad and/or mathematical symbols that students use to enter an answer a numeric response or mathematical equation.
  9. Hot Spot – This item type presents statements, figures, or other stimuli to students on which they click to answer a question.
  10. Short answer – This item type provides a text box for the student to freely type or write a short response.
  11. Extended answer – This item type requires students to provide an extended response.
