Test Assignment Guidance
PARCC: See “Important PARCC Test Assignment
Procedures for 2015.”
SBA Science: Grades 4, 7, and 11
Spanish Language Arts: ELs in their first 3 years in US
schools or 4th or 5th years with an approved EL waiver.
Testing Order
SBA (Science and SLA): Follow the order in the test book.
PARCC: There is no specific order for content area –
schools may administer ELA/L or Mathematics first.
Within PARCC content areas, units must be administered
in sequential order (except for make-up testing).
For example: Unit 1 -> Unit 2
Students may alternate between content areas.
For example: Unit 1 ELA/L EOY -> Unit 1 Mathematics EOY
-> Unit 2 ELA/L EOY -> Unit 2 Mathematics EOY
39
Make-Up Testing
•
If students miss a unit, they may skip the unit to
continue testing with their testing group and make up
the unit at another time.
•
Schools must schedule make-up testing within the
testing window.
•
Schools may combine students for content areas if the
unit testing times and administration scripts are the
same.
For example: Grade 3 ELA/L PBA and Grade 4 ELA/L PBA
40
Scheduling Tips
• Consider mobile labs/computer carts.
• Reserve room(s) for extended time testers and
non-CBT accommodations (where applicable).
• ES, MS, and HS will have different schedules.
• Preserve instructional time to the greatest possible
extent.
• Consider computer-based courses.
• Daily schedule may change for ALL students, esp. in
HS.
• Block schedule? Rotations? Classroom teacher or
different TA? Think outside the box!
