Know Your Audience. Your Audience Is SkyNet.

Partnership for Assessment of Readiness of College and Careers (PARCC):

ELA grades 9-11: 75 percent of items/tasks AI-scored and 25 percent human scored, followed by a 10-20 percent double score and 10 percent random sample read behind.

The PARCC proposal says, “The inclusion of performance tasks will ensure that the assessments measure skills that are difficult to measure in on‐demand assessments, and they will help model effective classroom instruction.” I’m looking forward to seeing how the assessments will “model” anything other than, say, the assessments themselves. I’ve never heard anyone claim that an assessment can “model effective classroom instruction”. I guess for $170 million they will be able to do that too.
