  • Tuesday, March 3, 2015: FIFTH GRADERS BECOME PARCC RANGERS!

    Posted by MaryJane Garibay at 3/3/2015

    Today, we are proud to share that CRES’s fifth graders completed their first day of PARCC testing by navigating through their ELA, Performance-Based Assessment (PBA), Unit 1: Literary Analysis.  Sixth graders, coming into today with one day of PARCC under their belts, moved on to their second ELA PBA, Unit 2: the Research Simulation Task. 

    Like yesterday, we were very pleased with our staff’s abilities to troubleshoot the very minor and minimal technology-related issues that came up during today’s sessions.  For example, one group – prior to the start of testing – found an unexpected “pop up” on their computer screens.  Thanks to the training and knowledge of our PARCC implementation team, the issue was swiftly and effectively corrected, allowing testing to begin as scheduled. 

    Tomorrow, our fifth graders will complete their ELA PBA, Unit 2: the Research Simulation Task.  Sixth graders will complete their third and final unit, the Narrative Task.  In the Narrative Task, students will be asked to demonstrate how narrative writing can be used to convey experiences or events, real or imaginary (PARCC, 2015).   

    REMINDER TO PARENTS: Please be sure to have your child(ren) bring a recreational book with them on days they are participating in PARCC.  Students are permitted to read a book after he/she completes a Unit. 

    We are hoping that Mother Nature will be on our side this week; however, if there are weather-related interruptions to the district’s testing schedule, we will notify students, staff, and parents accordingly.

  • Monday, March 2, 2015: READY, SET, PARCC!

    The messy conditions this morning did not prevent our sixth grade students from getting into CDMS and completing Unit 1 of their PARCC ELA Performance-Based Assessment.   Unit 1 of the ELA PBA is the Literary Analysis Task.  This task is designed to assess students’ abilities in reading literature, reading vocabulary, and producing a prose constructed response.   A great website for those interested in learning about PARCC assessment questions, in detail, can be accessed here: http://www.parcconline.org/ela-literacy-test-documents Test administrators for our sixth graders reported no issues with logging into the testing environment or being “logged out” while testing.  One minor issue that was addressed related to closings of laptop computers during scheduled breaks.  The issue was quickly addressed by our computer technicians and testing resumed for all students affected.

    Tomorrow, we look forward to another day of PARCC testing by bringing on board our students in grade 5 who will take Unit 1: Literary Analysis of the ELA and students in grade 6 who will continue their progress by diving into ELA’s Unit 2: Research Simulation Task (RST). Stay tuned…
