PARCC Scheduling Parameters, Considerations, and Options Parameters • The PARCC test windows are in the early and late spring. • After the first window (Performance Based Assessment or PBA) ends, there is only 17 days until the opening of the second window (End-Of-Year or EOY). • PBA – March 2-April 3 • EOY – April 20 – May 15 • These are the early window dates. The Time Required UNIT/SESSION TIMES PBA PBA Unit 1 Unit 2 Number of units PBA: All grades: 5 (3 ELA and 2 Math) EOY: Grades 3-5: 3 (1 ELA and 2 Math) Grades 6-11: 4 (2 ELA and 2 Math) PBA Unit 3 EOY Unit 1 75 75 EOY Unit 2 75 - 75 75 60 60 80 75 60 60 GRADE 3 ELA GRADE 3 MATH Unit Time Unit Time 75 75 75 75 60 GRADES 4-5 ELA GRADES 4-5 MATH Unit Time 75 90 60 Unit Time 80 70 GRADES 6-8 ELA GRADES 6-8 MATH Unit Time 75 90 Unit Time 80 70 GRADES 9-11 ELA Unit Time 75 90 ALGEBRA I GEOMETRY MATH I, II Unit Time 90 75 80 75 ALGEBRA II MATH III Unit Time 90 75 90 75 60 60 75 Grade of Student Mathematics Assessment Options for 2014-2015 7th grade 7 8 9 10 4 8th grade Algebra I Integrated I (Math I) Algebra I Integrated I (Math I) Geometry Integrated II (Math II) Algebra I Integrated I (Math I) Geometry Integrated II (Math II) Algebra II Integrated III (Math III) Additional Flexibility Pilot Options for 2014-2015 7th grade Algebra I Integrated I (Math I) 8th grade Algebra I Integrated I (Math I) Geometry Integrated II (Math II) Algebra I Integrated I (Math I) Geometry Integrated II (Math II) Algebra II Integrated III (Math III) Algebra I Integrated I (Math I) Geometry Integrated II (Math II) Algebra II Integrated III (Math III) Grade of Student 10 11* 12** Mathematics Assessment Options for 2014-2015 Algebra I Integrated I (Math I) Geometry Integrated II (Math II) Algebra II Integrated III (Math III) Geometry Integrated II (Math II) Algebra II Integrated III (Math III) Algebra II Integrated III (Math III) Additional Flexibility Pilot Options for 2014-2015 Algebra I Integrated I (Math I) Geometry Integrated II (Math II) Algebra II Integrated III (Math III) Geometry Integrated II (Math II) Algebra II Integrated III (Math III) Algebra II Integrated III (Math III) *No state assessment for those having completed instruction in the high school mathematics standards, typically through an Algebra II or Integrated III course in the prior year. These students may be engaged in advanced math instruction and take advanced placement or international baccalaureate exams. These students may also be participating in college concurrent enrollment. **No state assessment for those not enrolled in a math course addressing content covered in the above assessments. These students may be engaged in advanced math instruction and taking advanced placement or international baccalaureate exams. These students may also be participating in college concurrent enrollment. 5 Considerations • The Computer based PARCC has a 20 day window • The Paper based PARCC has a 10 day window • This is for both the PBA and the EOY windows • Unique accommodations (including text to speech for ELA) are due to CDE by Dec. 15 • Scheduling the PARCC will be determined largely by your ability to test using computers Considerations • Does your school have enough computers to test every student at one time? • Can you test at least 1 full grade level at a time? • How many students in your high schools will be taking the Algebra 1 exam? • Are you preparing your seniors taking Algebra 2 for the fact that they will test on math? • Can your district handle the bandwidth necessary for numerous schools testing at one time? • Are your computers ready to handle the software (Testnav 8)? • Are your third graders taking paper or computer? (you may want to sit at the same table) Considerations • Will you test while other grades are attending class as normal? • Will you stretch your testing out through the 20 days of the window? • All 9-11 grade students will test in English Language Arts. • All 9th and 10th graders must test on math. • All juniors who are not already past Algebra 2 must test on math. • All Seniors in Algebra 2 must test in math. • Are there issues to consider with transportation? • Food service? 8:00-9:25 11th grade – ELA 1 - 75 + 10 9:40-11:20 11th grade ELA 2 – 90 + 10 8:00-9:25 9th grade ELA 1 – 75 + 10 9:55-11:10 9th grade ELA 2 – 90 + 10 Day 1 11:35-1:15 Alg. 1-1 – 90+10 9th grade Geo and Alg. 2 - 1 Day 2 11:25-12:30 Day 3 grade - ELA 3 – 60 + 10 11:30-1:10 Alg. 2-1 – 90+10 11th grade Geo. & Alg. 1 - 1 Day 4 9:50-11:30 12:15-1:40 Geo. 1 – 90+10 Geo. 2 – 75+10 10th grade Alg. 1 and Alg. 2 - 1 10th grade Alg.1 and Alg. 2 - 2 Day 5 9:40-11:20 10th grade ELA 2 – 90 + 10 9th 8:00-9:25 Alg. 2-2 – 75+10 11th grade geo. and alg. 1 - 2 8:00-9:25 10th grade – ELA 1 - 75 + 10 Day 6 8:00-9:10 10th grade – ELA 1 - 60 + 10 1:40-3:05 Alg. 1-2 – 75+10 9th grade Geo. and Alg. 2 - 2 8:00-9:10 11th grade - ELA 3 – 60 + 10 Day 1 8:00-9:25 11th grade – ELA 1 - 75 + 10 9:40-11:20 11th grade ELA 2 – 90 + 10 11:35-1:15 Alg. 1-1 – 90+10 9th grade Geo and Alg. 2 - 1 Day 2 8:00-9:10 11th grade - ELA 3 – 60 + 10 9:25-10:50 Alg. 1-2 – 75+10 9th grade Geo. and Alg. 2 - 2 11:05-12:30 9th grade ELA 1 – 75 + 10 Day 3 8:00-9:40 9th grade ELA 2 – 90 + 10 10:00-11:10 9th grade - ELA 3 – 60 + 10 11:30-1:10 Alg. 2-1 – 90+10 11th grade Geo. & Alg. 1 - 1 Day 4 8:00-9:25 Alg. 2-2 – 75+10 11th grade geo. and alg. 1 - 2 9:50-11:30 Geo. 1 – 90+10 10th grade Alg. 1 and Alg. 2 - 1 Day 5 8:00-9:25 10th grade – ELA 1 - 75 + 10 9:40-11:20 10th grade ELA 2 – 90 + 10 Day 6 8:00-9:10 10th grade – ELA 1 - 60 + 10 12:15-1:40 Geo. 2 – 75+10 10th grade Alg.1 and Alg. 2 - 2 PBA Scheduling Question 1– When will you test?
