Teachers will need to create practice performance task so students can get familiar with the various tools. One particularly difficult task for students is to read a passage with a scroll bar on the left and take notes or answer questions on the right. The picture below is an excerpt from the PARCC practice test for 11th grade English.
In Google Chrome the teacher can use the extension Tab Scissors to split the screen and allow students to be able to read a passage and do something with the information on the right. For example, a teacher could assign a primary source text such as Dr. King Jr. Letter from Birmingham Jail and have the students take notes or answer questions.
