PARCC Field Test: Request for Additional Participation
Dear Spring 2014 PARCC Field Test Participants,
There have been a number of requests from schools and districts to volunteer more students for computer-based testing in the Spring 2014 PARCC Field Test End-of-Year assessment (EOY). In response, we are extending an offer to currently participating schools and districts (either participating in the computer-based or paper-based administration) who would like to volunteer more students for computer-based administration of the EOY.
In particular, PARCC is looking for additional volunteers for:
- English Language Arts/Literacy EOY: Grades 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11
- Mathematics EOY: Grades 3-8, Algebra I, Algebra II, Integrated Math I, II, and II
If a school or district would like to add more students to existing classrooms or add classrooms to field test participation, please fill out this brief form, and Pearson will contact you with more information. In order to expedite this process, you will be contacted within 48 hours of submitting this form.
- If the volunteer school is currently participating in the computer-based administration, please complete the form no later than May 2, 2014.
- If the volunteer school is currently participating in the paper-based administration, please complete the form no later than Friday, April 18. The expedited timeline for current paper-based schools is to account for the additional preparation and training that will need to occur to prepare the schools for computer-based administration.
Thank you for participating in this exciting opportunity.
