PNP - Personal Needs Profile
The 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.
Process for Collecting PNP Information:
For students without disabilities, and who are not English learners, decisions about which accessibility
features identified in advance (if any and if allowed) will be included in the student’s PNP will be made
based on the student’s education-related needs and preferences by an informal team, which may
include the:
a.Student (as appropriate)
c.Student’s primary educator in the subject of the assessment
