PARCC and Online Readiness
As a member of Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), New Jersey is committed to the administration of online assessments for the Common Core State Standards in the 2014/2015 school year. In order to help schools prepare for online assessment, NJDOE has procured a new technology readiness tool called NJTRAx. NJTRAx will assist in assessing the current status of infrastructure, technology and Internet connectivity at both a state and local level. Its intended use is to facilitate the movement towards digital learning and not just be a tool for gauging technology readiness for online assessments. New Jersey testing sites (districts, charter schools, approved private schools for students with disabilities and state facilities) must update and maintain the information for each of their schools in NJTRAx.
