Q. What is the purpose of the Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA) Exemption Report?

A. The SBA Exemption Report may be used to identify English learners that have been enrolled less than 12 cumulative months in a U.S. public school and therefore may be exempted from the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment in English-language arts. Schools must use local records to verify information.
