Professional Development Modules to Support Teachers

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF version

As a part of its commitment to support implementation of the PARCC assessment system, PARCC is creating a series of online professional development modules to accompany its next-generation assessment system. The five modules will consist of a series of short videos to support teachers and schools as they transition to the PARCC assessments.

The professional development modules will provide additional information in the following areas: overview of the four main assessment system components, administering the non-summative assessments, using non-summative data to support instruction, and available supports and accommodations. Educators are interested in these tools, some of the most powerful in the PARCC system, because the modules will give them flexible access to information.

The modules will be available in June 2014. Additional information about teacher training can be found on PARCC’s Educator Leader Cadre web pages.
