The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career (PARCC) tests are designed to measure performance against rigorous standards. The tests go beyond multiple choice questions and require students to use skills like analyzing, problem solving, and writing effectively. All of these skills are necessary in order for students to be successful in the real world.
Students who met or exceeded expectations are likely to be on track for the next grade level and ultimately for college and career readiness.
The PARCC results will also be used to measure student growth for school and district accountability.
