Technology Readiness Checker for Students

- The Technology Readiness Checker for Students (TRCS) is a game-like tool students navigate to create a storyboard. The navigation through the TRCS is similar to the navigation used in a computer-based assessment and can be used to identify your child’s technology readiness for online testing.
- The TRCS is not an assessment and does not provide scores.
