Technology Readiness Tool Update Collection Opens April 2

The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium along with the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) developed a Technology Readiness Tool to support states’ planning as they transition to next-generation assessments. This optional survey will provide Oregon with critical information about the technology needed to administer the new online assessments in four areas: computers, computer-to-tester ratio, network infrastructure, and staff and personnel.

There will be six data collection windows in this tool. The first collection window runs April 2 to June 14, 2012.

Information for using the Technology Readiness Tool and uploading the information is available at the following links:
