This report, based on a survey of a nationally representative sample of school districts located in Common Core-adopting states that are also members of the PARCC or Smarter Balanced testing consortium, examines school districts’ efforts to prepare for the consortia assessments. The report discusses district leaders’ views on the consortia assessments, plans to provide remediation and support for students who may need assistance, readiness for administering the assessment online, and plans for revising or eliminating their own math and English language arts assessments.
