Feedback for ISBE & Pearson  - 
 
We had heard during PBA that students who refused all of PBA would not be required to sit for EOY.  As of Thursday, we heard this was no longer the case.  This was from Jim Palmer at ISBE.

Has anyone created a screencast or tip sheet for moving kids from one section starting point to another.  Don't want to recreate the wheel and it's happening with more frequency.

It's a good day when your biggest worry is what to do with the kids when you have so much extra time.  Day 1 and 2- have been very smooth.  Minor glitches, but nothing that took us out of the game.  

Thanks to this community for all of the collaboration and support.

Technical Issues  - 
 
From +Keith Bockwoldt :

Greetings - Yesterday we attempted a very large trial test with 450 students in the gymnasium. The trial consisted of using 6 high density APs, iPads, Casper Focus and wireless keyboards. All technology met the specifications and was validated on the iTRAX website. There were numerous problems ranging from having students re-associate to an AP to TestNav errors. In the end, it did not go well and consider it a failure. Yes, this is the reason we test...to work out the bugs and be prepared.

While we dissected the testing and now know what measures need to be in place come test time, the pure amount of staff (both technical and administrative) is exhaustive.

This reminds us of what happened in Indiana last year when the server couldn't handle the volume of testing.

From watching the different lists, there are concerns throughout the state. However, there is something that can be done. When speaking with my superintendent, he mentioned he met with legislators yesterday. They (the legislators) informed him he is the only superintendent that had concerns. He feels strongly that PARCC can be stopped this year. He suggested that all tech directors, CTOs, CIOs, Board members and superintendents contact their legislators http://www.ilga.gov/ & http://ilraiseyourhand.org/content/park-parcc

If you're struggling with preparing for PARCC, please consider contacting your local legislator. Many voice can make an impact!

Where do I find my LEA number?  We've been asked for this to report our test irregularities.

1st round of PARCC has launched successfully.  We made the mistake of entering username and password for our 3rd graders prior to testing the sound.  This translates to having to exit the session, turn the sound up, resume the session- IF the sound wasn't on prior to us launching the session.  We'll keep you posted on how this plays out.

Have people already added their sessions to the blue site?  We want to get ahead of this but don't want to break anything.
