Smarter Balance Tests This web site provides information about the test, called Smarter Balance, that will be adminsitered to students. Information about fielding testing the Smarter Balance Tests and practice test sample questions for grades 3 – 8 and 11 in the subject areas of English language arts and mathematics are available.

​Smarter Balance Practice Tests The Smarter Balance Practice Tests are now available for grades three through eight and grade eleven in English-language arts and mathematics. The Practice Tests provide a preview of the Smarter Balanced assessments but not reflect the full range of content that students may encounter on the actual assessments.

As teachers review what needs to be taught, they can rely on district created Curriculum Maps. Each map provides the teachers with a list of the order of lessons to be done as well as providing the teacher content information relevant to the standards. Based on their students, other content areas and instructional needs teachers may adjust these as an individual or as a team. Each standard is addressed in the topic maps and resources, examples and essential questions are delineated for each. See samples in the tabs below.

As part of our vision of continuous learning for all, we have been putting additional focus in the area of mathematics. In order for our students to be mathematically proficient, they must have strong skills in conceptual understanding, procedural knowledge and problem solving. In order to best equip teachers with the strategies needed to support students in deep conceptual understanding we have created a multi-year professional development plan using a nationally known math educator and researcher, Dr. Juli Dixon and trainers from DMUSD and EUSD for Cognitively Guided Instruction. Both support teachers in building differentiated classrooms that focus first on conceptual understanding through problem solving before moving students into procedural mathematics.

This training does not replace the content (Standards) being taught or the curricular maps teachers use, rather this work focuses on how teachers sequence within the lessons and provide instruction. For example, how and when a teacher presents a rigorous math task and how they support deep conceptual understanding of the math within the task makes a tremendous difference for student sense-making.
We will be doing demonstrations and more in depth overviews of these strategies at sites during parent nights this year! For more information on either strategy, please see the link below for the EUSD Math Design Plan.

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) As we move from an era of science being about fact knowledge to one of students being scientific thinkers and problem-solvers, our Next Generation Science Standards provide a foundation for this work. They call for the deep understanding of science content along with skills in communication, collaboration, inquiry, problem solving, and flexibility. This month all of our teachers attended our third district wide NGSS training. At the training, teachers received the instructional materials and resources aligned to the NGSS Frameworks. These curricular/scope and sequence maps, lessons, experiments and strategies were all built into PowerSchool for teachers and students. This work has been done in conjunction with training from San Diego County Office of Education and our Teachers On Special Assignment (TOSAs) who have worked through the Elementary Science Academy and NGSS Regional Leadership Cohort to review resources and research-based strategies. We will be doing demonstrations and more in depth overviews of these standards at sites during parent nights this year! For more information, please see the EUSD NGSS Design Plan.
