Educators at Passaic City (N.J.) Public Schools are not only using Google for Education tools to raise student achievement and better prepare students for college and career success; administrators are also using Google Chromebooks to prepare for the new generation of online assessments beginning this fall. The 13,700-student district plans to expand to a 1:1 program by the 2014-2015 school year, becoming one of the largest education deployments of Chromebooks in the country.
Chromebooks have been verified by PARCC and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium to be used for online student assessments. Presenters will discuss how to use Chromebooks as a secure, locked-down device for online testing, as well as the impact that Google tools can have on teaching and learning.
