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.

Selecting the right school furniture can be a challenging task, especially when it comes to computer workstations and chairs. With many students taking computer classes, furnishing a school with the appropriate technology furniture is a must. Key features should include comfort, mobility, and flexibility.
One size certainly does not fit all when it comes to computer furniture. What is comfortable to the high school football player will not be so accommodating to the varsity cheerleader. With concerns about posture and repetitive motion injuries, ergonomic and comfortable chairs are essential furnishings for computer classes.
