DESE seeking feedback from educators on PARCC field testing
DESE is partnering with the state's Readiness Centers for a series of listening sessions to get feedback on the PARCC field test. District- and school-level PARCC test administrators including principals, instructional coaches, classroom teachers, special ed teachers and other educators involved in field testing are asked to participate.
The "listening tour" is a great opportunity for MTA educators to voice their concerns, suggestions and ideas about improving PARCC directly to DESE leadership.
