Field testing in PARCC states kicked off early Monday morning when the first test takers, from Preble-Shawnee Sr./Jr. School in Ohio, logged on before 8:00 am to take the Algebra I and Geometry tests. Since then, over 199,000 students have participated in the field tests. For the techies among us, this tidbit: of all testing devices on Monday, 81% used Windows, 9.5% Mac, 6.9% Chromebooks and 2.7% iPad. All have worked, though some schools have had to work out a few glitches with the Chromebooks. Overall, we are off to a great start and it has gone more or less as we expected.
