  • Remember these are “PARCC minimum and recommended”. PARCC recommendations correlate with SETDA’s 2014-15 targets.
  • Amount of time the typical student will need to complete each sessionMay be refined based on research and pilot testingMost students will complete the test sessions within the estimated timesAll students will have a set amount of additional time for each session to demonstrate knowledgeMore guidance will be issued later this year (2013)

  • For a school with nine tested grades (K-12)Minimum number of devices – one device per student for the two largest tested gradesRecommended number of devices - one device per student for the four largest tested grades
  • Reducing the number of days will require bandwidth/device upgrades.
  • * Data derived from the Technology Readiness Tool (http://assess4ed.net/) can be used to determine the number of devices in a school’s inventory that meet minimum technology specifications.
