PACKRAT® Version 27 Release
Date Correction: The original version of this alert stated an incorrect date for the PACKRAT® Version 27 release. All PACKRAT administrations scheduled to be taken on or after November 19 will be transitioned to Version 27 of the exam.
PACKRAT® Version 27 is available for exam administrations starting Saturday, November 19. No blueprint or topic list changes were made, and the current documents are still applicable. All PACKRAT administrations scheduled to be taken on or after November 19 will be transitioned to the new version.
Version 26 will remain available as a back-up for retesting purposes, but Version 25 will no longer be available. After the new version has been taken 300 times, we will add national average scores and standard deviations to all performance reports. These will be updated weekly as more students take the exams. This usually happens in late November or early December.
PACKRAT Version 27 will be launched in ExamDriver. For now, exam users will continue to schedule and administer all PAEA exams through ExamDriver and all current features and capabilities will remain the same. We will keep you updated with more information about our next generation exam delivery platform as it becomes available, and we thank you for your patience and support as we look ahead to this exciting transition. For more detailed information and instructions for how to use PACKRAT, please refer to the PACKRAT Faculty Guide or reach out to exams@PAEAonline.org with any questions.
