WHAT IS PARCC?
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a consortium which is working to develop a standard set of K-12 assessments in math and English.
The PARCC Consortium is comprised of a group of states work together to develop assessments which measure students’ knowledge and understanding of the Common Core State Content Standards. This means that the content of these assessments tests the knowledge and skill sets needed for students to be successful in college and careers in the future.
By aligning the assessments with the Common Core State Content Standards, PARCC will assure that the Common Core is being taught in our classrooms.

* The PARCC test was designed to provide clear information on your child’s progress toward meeting grade level expectations and mastering important skills like critical thinking. The score report gives you a snapshot of how your child is progressing and shows where he or she excels or needs more support. This information, along with grades, teacher feedback and scores on other tests, will help give a more complete picture of how well your child is performing academically.
** Looking for ways to use your children’s test scores to support them at home? Search by grade, subject, and scoring category to find resources tailored to the areas where your child needs support.
