Students begin PARCC today.
I will tell them to take their time and do their best.
We've heard that "writing more increases your score" and I'll share that information.
I'll remind the students that they've studied the material all year and they should trust themselves and "show what they know."
As they test, I'll be there to help out with computer issues, students' procedural questions, and other administration issues.
Last year the tests went very well so I expect the same will happen today.
