Here is a collection of resources to assist school site administrators start to prepare for the administration of next generation Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT). While emphasis is placed on California’s CAASPP (formerly CalMAPP)/SBAC assessments, this document is relevant to all CAT programs. Though this list is not exhaustive, it should provide school and district administrators with a foundation in order to start the planning process toward the implementation of the field test.

Catilin Tucker, a well known educator and blogger, provides several effective and free technology tools that can be used in the classroom. Great resources to share with your teachers.
Governors and state commissioners of education from 48 states, 2 territories and the District of Columbia committed to developing a common core of state standards in English-language arts and mathematics for grades K-12. This is a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). These standards define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 education careers so that they will graduate high school able to succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing academic college courses and in workforce training programs.
Worried about testing students in a specific amount of time?This calculator estimates the number of days and associated network bandwidth required to administer English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics assessments given the number of students, number of computers, and number of hours per day computers are available for testing at a specific school. The estimates are displayed at the bottom of the screen below the buttons.
This presentation from Dennis Deets at the Leadership 3.0 Symposium is designed to give administrators an overview of the role educational technology will play in the California Common Core Standards (CCCS). Topics covered include: CCCS student learning expectations relevant to web based research and publication, CCCS assessment needs and student internet access, and in smaller part, various other topics from disruptive innovation to open-access as they pertain to CCCS. This presentation will help district leaders build an educational technology vision that is grounded on student learning in a time of CCCS.
