The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC
) today announced a new planning tool and guidance for schools and districts to help them prepare for assessments in the 2014-2015 school year.
The PARCC Assessment Administration Capacity Planning Tool provides schools and districts with a calculator that supports local technology budgeting and decision-making in preparation for computer-based administration of the tests in the 2014-2015 school year.
PARCC is also releasing guidance that provides schools and districts with more information about the design of the PARCC assessments in English language arts/literacy and mathematics, as well as the number of testing sessions and the approximate time it will take students to complete the assessments.
