PARCC EOY testing

This week's prep and next week's testing window...

Testing Schedule:

Grades 3 - 5 will be testing Monday (5/18) - Wednesday (5/20).

  • Monday = ELA Unit 1
  • Tuesday = Math Unit 1
  • Wednesday = Math Unit 2

Specific start and end time for each grade level should be provided by Ellen

iPad Single App Mode Test:

Thursday morning during homeroom we are going to do a "single app mode test run." John Allegretto will be locking the iPads into single app mode shortly before homeroom on Thursday. During homeroom, please have the students turn on their iPads and ensure that the TestNav app is open and that the students can't get out of the app. Patrick and I will be floating around, so please get in touch with them if you have students whose iPads are not in TestNav. John will unlock the iPads about 15 minutes after homeroom.


Please make sure you homeroom's iPads are all plugged in and charging on Wednesday afternoon in preparation for Thursday's single app mode test. Also, the same goes for Friday afternoon in preparation for Monday morning's live testing.

Pearson Access Next Accounts:

On Thursday morning, you will receive an email from Josh Murphy to reset your Pearson Access Next account. You can reset your password and login to Pearson Access anytime Thursday or Friday. Please make sure you log into Pearson Access Next before Friday afternoon to ensure your account is all set and ready for Monday morning. You don't have to, but you can practice navigating to the "session control screen" where you start the sessions and resume students.

Note: Josh found an easier way to get to your "session control screen," so he will be following up with instructions on Thursday morning and there will also be instructions in the Purple Folders on Monday morning
