As of July, the following at affirmed their commitment to field test:
Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Tennessee and the District of Columbia.That leaves Kentucky as still in but not having affirmed their commitment to field test; all other states that were in as of July that did not affirm--Florida, Indiana, and Oklahoma--since have dropped out of the consortium.
All of which will make Commissioner Chester's update on PARCC tomorrow at the Massachusetts Board of Education meeting that much more interesting!
