If your state adopted the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) or the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium's Common Core-aligned digital assessments, you will soon be doing away with the old-fashioned fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice tests.
Moving to digital math assessments represents a massive change in the way American students are given a chance to prove their depths of knowledge. However, because these tests are brand new, many students have not gotten a chance to see or practice them.
