Helping Schools and Districts Administer the Assessments

PARCC provides detailed guidance to help districts and schools successfully administer the state assessments. Key tools include:

PARCC Test Administration Portal

The PARCC test administration portal is a one-stop shop for all training and technical materials needed to administer the PARCC assessments. The portal includes:
  • Technology guidelines, which provide minimum and recommended specifications for computer hardware, input devices, and security requirements, and suggest recommended levels of bandwidth that will support schools' instructional and assessment needs
  • Spring test coordinator manual and test administrator manuals. Includes step-by-step directions on planning for PARCC administration
  • PARCC spring training modules. Includes videos and PowerPoint presentations to guide school and district test coordinators and administrators, technology and accommodations coordinators


Unit Testing Times

The times were established so that students would have sufficient time to complete the assessments but also to minimize the amount of time spent on testing.
