State Educational Technology Directors Association (SEDTA) released a draft white paper – Technology Requirements for Large-Scale Computer-Based and Online Assessment: Current Status and Issues – to provide guidance on the “nuts and bolts” of the technology requirements necessary for both PARCC and the SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium.

Achieve and the U.S. Education Delivery Institute have developed a practical Common Core Implementation Workbook for all states in the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). The workbook uses a proven performance management methodology known as “delivery” to lay out clear action steps for states and districts. It provides relevant information, case stories of good practice, key questions and hands-on exercises for leadership teams to complete together.
