The Test Administrator Manual for PARCC Field Tests completed on electronic devices has been released. This manual is a mandatory resource for proctors and field test coordinators. The manual provides extensive details about test taking environments and both acceptable and prohibited materials during test taking.
Examples of some prohibited materials
Perhaps most importantly, the PARCC Test Administrator Manual provides proctor scripts for presenting the test materials and test guidelines to students. This script is similar to the instructions from the MCAS Test Administrator Manuals.
The manual also provides details about Massachusetts specific rules and regulations.
