Now, that you are looking at some of the 2016 Released Math Test Items from PARCC, I bet you are wondering whether or not your students will be comfortable with the
COMPUTER Format of this test.
So, don't wonder.... use your computer time and have your students take the Mathematics Online Practice Test that is available from PARCC.
You can access it HERE.
First, you select the grade level to view practice tests.
- The practice test platforms have a default login of "Guest," however, users can choose to enter a name when they begin. This is for the teacher’s reference when printing reports at the end of the scoreable practice tests. This information is not captured or maintained in the system. Teachers can assign numerical values to each student as a log in, if it is preferred.
- Paper practice tests can be printed. The material on these tests is non-secure.
By the way, if you look at one of the provided exams and are afraid that the students don't know that information yet ..... give them the answers. Your goal is not to have them take the test to see what they know, but to get them comfortable with the different format. Your students will be amazed that you would actually give them the answers!
