We have created a new site that will provide information regarding the implementation of the 2014 PARCC trial in Massachusetts schools. The Massachusetts PARCC Trial site will highlight the experiences of students, teachers, administrators, technology professionals, and test developers as the PARCC assessments are introduced to schools in our state.
The information available on the site will also highlight the progress of two specific PARCC field tests happening in Burlington Public Schools and Revere Public Schools during the 2014 Performance Based Assessment and End of Year Assessment. Members of implementation teams from both districts along with students and teachers will provide details about their PARCC experiences.
We are also looking to gather experiences from other schools in Massachusetts that are taking part in the field test. Our hope is that the site can serve as a collaborative space for discussing what works and what needs improvement for the new PARCC system.
Please consider contacting us and providing details about anything PARCC field test related. You can add comments and questions to the posts and pages of the site or contact me with details that you want to share.
