Technology enhanced items utilize computer-based administration to assess a deeper understanding of content and skills than would otherwise be possible with traditional item types.

Selected-response and technology-enhanced items can be scored automatically. To learn more about technology enhanced items,view the video below produced by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium.
