Infrastructure Trial
An Infrastructure Trial is an opportunity for LEAs, schools, and
students to prepare for the computer-based PARCC Test by
simulating test-day network utilization.
The Infrastructure Trial should take approximately 60 minutes to
administer. Schools are encouraged to provide any feedback on the
Infrastructure Trial to LEAs. LEAs should contact your State PARCC
Test Lead with feedback and/or concerns regarding software or
hardware issues.
Note: Before conducting an Infrastructure Trial, there is a Technology Setup that needs to
be completed by Technology Coordinators and a set of tasks in PearsonAccessnext that Test
Coordinators will need to complete prior to the Infrastructure Trial.
