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.
