PARCC / SBAC - Who's in and Who's Out?

Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) and Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), two assessment consortiums, have been developing new tests to address the Common Core academic subjects. For a long time, those who belonged to the consortia were pretty much the same as those who planned to use the tests. However, recent events indicate a few states dropped out of the consortia altogether, while Pennsylvania is a member of both but announced they have no intentions to use either test.
