The purpose of these tutorials is to demonstrate the navigation and tools available for Computer-Based Assessments. The items appearing in these tutorials are samples used to allow students and educators to gain familiarity with the technology platform that will be used for PARCC assessments.
*I recommend the TestNav 8 Tutorial*


http://parcc.pearson.com/sample-items/
Try out test questions on the technology platform that students will use when taking the computer-based PARCC tests. Engage with the different types of items (drag-and-drop, multiple select, etc.) and computer based tools (calculator, highlighter, etc.) that will be available. Sample Items will not be scored.
