With this in mind, many people have found partitions and room dividers to be an easy answer to the space dilemma.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) consists of a group of 14 states and the District of Columbia working to establish a set of high quality, computer-based assessments in K-12 subjects. The PARCC assessments will be ready for administration during the 2014-2015 school year. Other states are either considering joining PARCC or are developing their own computer-based testing initiatives. While this shift in student assessment requires fewer physical resources such as printed testing booklets and writing instruments, schools must prepare to be equipped with the technology and computer furniture requirements necessary for computer-based testing.
