Boot Camp 2014 Session 1: Tech Skills for Next Generation Assessments
With PARCC and Smarter Balanced, schools are moving to online assessments that include technology-enhanced, interactive assessment items. It is critical for students to be proficient in these technology skills prior to taking the online assessments so they will be assessed on their content knowledge rather than their proficiency (or lack of) with technology. In this webinar, you’ll learn what technology skills students need for these next generation assessments and see free online resources that help students develop familiarity and proficiency with these technology skills. For more details see http://nextgen.apps.sparcc.org/.
