As part of my doctoral dissertation, I invite you to participate in a research study entitled “Preferred Information Platforms for Parents Choosing to Refuse Mandatory PARCC Testing in a Southern New Jersey School District”. The purpose of the research is to determine preferred information platforms regarding PARCC for parents of students in grades 3-6.
Information is being gathered via a short survey. Please reference the bottom half of this letter in order to access the survey. The survey is designed to collect information on most utilized information sources regarding PARCC, as well as how much time parents and guardians are spending researching information regarding PARCC before making the decision on test refusal.

There are no known risks to participation beyond those encountered in everyday life.
