APS School Staff Asked to Complete Survey on Internet Access

The questionnaire will help the state prepare for the PARCC computer-based assessments scheduled to replace the SBA in 2014-15.

As the state prepares for the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) computer-based assessments -- scheduled to replace the current SBA math, reading and writing assessment in  2014-15 -- the New Mexico Public Education Department is gathering data on school internet speeds.

On May 1, PED kicked off the New Mexico SchoolSpeedTest Month as part of the National K-12 Broadband Inventory effort in conjunction with EducationSuperHighway.

The SchoolSpeedTest is fast and easy to take. Technology directors, principals, teachers, librarians, students, school staff or any person on a school network can test how fast their school’s Internet is in one minute, and become part of the movement to upgrade every school to high-speed Internet.

All you have to do is go to http://partners.schoolspeedtest.org/NewMexico.html, select your school, and run the test!
