PARCC Posts Sample Test Questions for Students’ Computer Practice

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) has posted sample test items on the testing platform students will use when taking the field test later this spring. Read the online tutorials first to see how to navigate through the test, how to use the computer-based tools, and how to access the accessibility features. Students can become comfortable with the computer functions that will be available on the field test—drag-and-drop, multiple selection, text highlighting, and an equation builder. The items are similar to the types of items students will see on the test in spring 2015. The sample items are available at www.parcconline.org/computer-based-samples.
