Smarter Balanced Scores may be used for college-level placement.


  • Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) assessments in English and Math are taken by 10th and 11th graders in Washington high schools.
    • A score of 3 or 4 on the SBAC English (ELA) assessment places that examinee into initial college-level English, ENGL&101.
    • A score of 3 SBAC Math assessment places that examinee into initial college-level math courses.
    • A score of 4 SBAC Math places that examinee as high as MATH&141, Pre-Calculus. Placement into MATH&151, Calculus, requires that other South placement instruments be used (ACT, placement test, transcripts).
    • Those receiving 2 SBAC in either ELA or Math and completing a Bridge to College course with a grade of “B” qualify at the 3 level placements.
  • For English, SBAC may be used through Spring Quarter of the year following high school graduation; a South English placement test (or other qualifying instrument) will be required for anyone enrolling after that quarter.
  • For Math, SBAC may be used through Fall Quarter following high school graduation; a South math placement test (or other qualifying instrument) will be required for anyone enrolling after that quarter.
  • SBAC score reports should be sent or brought officially (mailed from your high school or brought in-person in an envelope sealed by your high school) to the South Advising office, Robert Smith Building, Room 11, South Seattle College, 6000 16th Ave SW, Seattle WA 98106
