  • TRT - The move to online assessments gives rise to a distinctive set of challenges for school technology. This online tool gives schools a convenient way to capture and report on indicators of their technology readiness for the new Race to the Top Assessments. The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium and the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), working with the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) and Pearson, have developed the Technology Readiness Tool to support states as they transition to next-generation assessments. This open source tool will help state education agencies work with schools and districts to ensure readiness when the online assessments are launched by the two consortia, beginning in the 2014/15 school year. - Link
