We did it! March's PARCC PBA online testing is complete. There were a few hiccups along the way, but we all learned a lot and did so relatively smoothly. I'm calling it a "win"!
What were the hiccups? On the test setup end, we had some incorrect accommodations and accessibility features that we were able to fix. Next time around, I will be double and triple checking those test forms. In terms of the online test itself, we had a few questions that got hung up or wouldn't let the students do what needed to be done. Those were not overwhelming. Most of the mathematics problems were in the editor window. Pearson gets a shout out for fixing some issues with testing even while it was in progress. They adapted when their fax was overwhelmed and took care of the submitting too early problem as well.
I'm planning on enjoying a break before May's EOY PARCC testing. Hope you do the same!
This is it - the long awaited March PBA PARCC testing window!
