More than 1,200 schools will participate this spring in the first widespread tryouts of the state’s new online testing that will replace the current exams in 2014-15.
The state Department of Education released the list of 1,267 public schools and charter schools chosen to field-test different sections of the new exams.
The testing – know as Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) — will ultimately be administered to students in Grades 3-11 in language arts and math. The tests will be entirely online, replacing and expanding on the state’s current pencil and paper testing, and will be aligned with the new national Common Core State Standards.
