Input Sought on Test Accommodations

The multistate consortium known as PARCC is seeking input on part of the accommodation-policy manual for tests it is creating for the Common Core State Standards.

The group is looking for guidance on policies that would govern the use of calculators on math tests and read-aloud supports for the English/language arts tests.

PARCC, the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, are charged with creating common-core assessments, which will be administered for the first time in 2014-15. The groups were awarded $360 million from the U.S. Department of Education for this work.

The comment period on the draft calculator and read-aloud policies ends Feb. 4.
