In spring 2014, the PARCC Field Test will be administered to over one million students across PARCC states. The PARCC Field Test represents a critical milestone in PARCC’s work toward building assessments for the 2014-15 school year and will give students and local educators the opportunity to experience the administration of PARCC assessments. The Field Test will be conducted in a random selection of schools across PARCC states. The sample of students in the selected schools will represent the demographics of each state and PARCC as a whole.
PARCC has developed a variety of resources to assist schools and districts as they prepare to administer Spring 2014 Field Test. These resources will allow educators in all PARCC states to:
Begin reviewing PARCC Field test administration guidance and timelines
Begin reviewing schools’ device and network readiness for administration of PARCC assessments
Gain familiarity with the types of items that will appear on the PARCC assessments
Explore training and support materials designed specifically for the spring 2014 Field Test
