I've gotten some questions this morning on PARCC field testing, so I'm putting this all together in one place.
The presentation we got last night is here.
The list of classes and schools scheduled for spring field testing in Worcester is here. That chart also specifies either ELA or math, and says either "PBA," "EOY," or both. That's for Performanced-Based Assessment, End of Year Assessment, or both.
Performance Based Assessment: March 24-April 11
End of Year: May 5- June 6
The bit that I've cited about opting out of testing "except as prohibited by" state or federal law is on page 18 of the WPS Student Handbook.
Send along questions if you've got them!
