Personal Needs Profile
The Personal Needs Profile (PNP) is a collection of student
information regarding a student’s testing condition, materials, or
accessibility features and accommodations that are needed to take
a PARCC assessment.
4
PARCC accessibility features
and accommodations
For a complete list of accessibility features and accommodations
available for PARCC assessments, refer to the PARCC Accessibility
Features and Accommodations Manual. The manual provides
information on the selection, administration, and evaluation of all of
the accessibility features and accommodations you may include
when populating a student’s Personal Needs Profile.
The manual can be located at: http://www.parcconline.org/parccaccessibility-features-and-accommodations-manual
5
What Student Information is
Collected and Where
1. Embedded Accessibility features, identified in advance, that
need to be enabled (via PNP File Layout/User Interface).
2. Embedded Accommodations that need to be enabled (via PNP
File Layout/User Interface).
3. Externally-provided accessibility features, identified in advance,
and accommodations (via PNP File Layout/User Interface).
4. Paper-based accommodated forms that required advance
shipping (via Student Registration File).
6
Who Collects Information
for Student PNPs
1. Students with disabilities: IEP team or 504 plan coordinator
2. English learners: Educator(s) responsible for selecting
accommodations
3. English learners with disabilities: IEP team, including
educator(s) familiar with the language needs of the student or
504 plan coordinator
4. Students without disabilities and who are not English learners:
Team may include:
1.

Student (as appropriate);
Parent/guardian; and
Student’s primary educator in the subject of the assessment.
Personal Needs Profile
Import – Important Notes
•
Students must be registered prior to loading PNP data. PNP data is matched to
existing student registrations.
•
Separate PNP files must be loaded for PBA and again for EOY (for schools
participating in Spring administration, all students must take both the PBA and
EOY).
•
Separate PNP records must be loaded for each student for ELA and Math.
•
PNP data can be uploaded, provided, and updated up to the day prior to the
beginning of Test Administration. However, it must be completed prior to Proctor
Caching so the appropriate content can be provided for each student.
•
Providing PNP data prior to test administration will ensure that students receive
appropriate accessibility features that need to be identified in advance and/or
accommodations on testing day.
8
Personal Needs Profile
Import – Selecting Students
• Basic PNP data exists for all students. However, only data for students
requiring accessibility features that need to be identified in advance or
accommodations (and in some states the administrative considerations)
need to be submitted into PearsonAccessnext for each administration.
• Any paper based accessibility feature or accommodation which requires
materials to be shipped will need to be requested in the Student
Registration File import. (e.g., Large Print, Braille with Tactile Graphics,
Human Reader or Human Signer for ELA/L Kits, Paper Test for Online
Students, and Spanish Paper Mathematics Assessments).
• For additional guidance regarding use of PNP, please contact your state
contact.
9
Personal Needs Profile
Import – Options
There are two main methods for creating a Personal Needs Profile
File and uploading the data:
1. PNP File Layout
2. User Interface
Note: Please contact your state office if you believe your state has
an alternate method than the options identified above.
10
Personal Needs Profile
Import
To begin creating your Personal Needs Profile File, go to
PearsonAccessNext.com and select your State from the “Select Your
Program” dropdown menu.
• Login using your PearsonAccessnext account.
• Click on the “Support” and locate the Personal Needs Profile
File Field Definitions Document.
11
Personal Needs Profile
Import
To prepare your Personal Needs Profile File, use the Personal Needs Profile Field
Definitions as your guide. Through this document, you will walk through each field
and its purpose.
From left to right, you will see the following fields:
• Column Letter - corresponds to the .csv file layout.
• Field Name - provides the name of each element.
• Required? Y/N - indicates whether each field is required.
• Field Length - outlines the maximum number of characters allowed in each
field.
• PARCC Definitions and Notes - these are PARCC-specific definitions and notes.
• Expected Values - describes which characters are allowed in the field.
12
Personal Needs Profile File
Layout
• The PNP File Layout contains multiple fields that may require
leading zeroes, such as the Responsible District Identifier.
• If you use Microsoft Excel, it is recommended that you save a
source file as an Excel Spreadsheet to keep formatting (leading
zeros). Prior to each upload attempt, save data file as an Excel
spreadsheet. Then save again as a .csv file. If you encounter an
error, make the updates in the source Excel spreadsheet and save,
then save again as a .csv file. Repeat as necessary.

Profile (PNP) Layout with the required student data. Use the Personal Needs Profile
Field Definitions as a reference to ensure all required fields have been populated.

Helpful Hints
The Personal Needs Profile cross validates several fields to a student’s registration
data in addition to other fields location in the Personal Needs Profile. Read
the PARCC Definitions and Notes carefully to prevent records from encountering
cross validation errors.
It is recommended to export a Personal Needs Profile for the organization(s)
needing to add/update accommodations and accessibility features identified in
advance for any student. This export will contain all student registration data. If
any information needs to be changed, users must make edits by importing a
student registration file or within PearsonAccessnext interface.
Populating “Y” in the Tactile Graphics field will not automatically initiate an
order for a Tactile Graphic for online Refreshable Braille. An additional order will
need to be placed if a student needs this material.

Important Notes
We just covered importing the Personal Needs Profile (PNP) student data to
PearsonAccessnext through a system file.
Note: A Personal Needs Profile (PNP) File does not need to be entered for every
student, only those requiring accessibility features identified in advance or
accommodations. Some states may also require a PNP file for students who need
administrative considerations. If a student needs a PNP file created, a file must be
entered for PBA and again for EOY (for schools participating in Spring
administration, all students must take both the PBA and EOY).
