About the Practice Test Scoring Guides
The Smarter Balanced Mathematics Practice Test Scoring Guides provide details about the items,
student response types, correct responses, and related scoring considerations for the Smarter
Balanced Practice Test items. The items selected for the Practice Test are designed to reflect
a broad coverage of claims and targets that closely mirror the summative blueprint.
a range of student response types.
a breadth of difficulty levels across the items, ranging from easier to more difficult items.
a sample of performance tasks with open-ended response types that allow students to
demonstrate knowledge related to critical thinking and application.
It is important to note that all student response types are not fully represented on every practice test,
but a distribution can be observed across all the practice tests. The items presented are reflective of
refinements and adjustments to language based on pilot test results and expert recommendations
from both content and accessibility perspectives.
Within this guide, each item is presented with the following information1:
Claim
Domain
Target2
Depth of Knowledge (DOK)
Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Content (CONTENT)
Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice (MP)
Answer key or exemplar
Static presentation of the item
Static presentation of student response field(s)
Rubric and applicable score points for each item
The following items are representative of the kinds of items that students can expect to experience
when taking the Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) portion of the summative assessment for Grade 7. A
separate document is available that provides a Grade 7 sample performance task and scoring guide.

Most of these terms (Claim, Domain, Target, DOK, etc.) are defined in various other Smarter Balanced
documents, as well as the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Refer to the Content Specifications
for the Summative Assessment of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics for more information.

When more than one target is presented, the first one listed is considered the primary target for the item.
