Warrensburg-Latham Schools To Start PARCC Testing This Week

One area school district will begin this year's round of the recently installed PARCC tests.


Warrensburg-Latham schools are going to be taking large chunks of time this week for their students to begin the yearly assessments. Superintendent Dr. Kristen Kendrick-Weikle says the preparation for the tests starts well before they're administered.



Last year was the first year of PARCC testing and Dr. Kendrick-Weikle says even after a year of introduction, there are still some adjustments to make. She explains tests are very time consuming even before the test dates.



This year there were some adjustments to the tests. Dr. Kendrick-Weikle explains while the state reduced the test times from two sessions to one, however, they have increased the amount of time invested in the tests.



Dr. Kendrick-Weikle calls the PARCC assessments an improvement over tests 10 years ago but says they are still not accurate to what students will do when they enter the workforce and how they could be applying the things they learned.
