PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers)
Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grades will be given the PARCC Exams beginning April 7th. This year, the tests will be administered online. Other changes that have been made are:
Reduced Test Time and Test Sessions – There will be only one test window with less test sessions and less time spent on testing.
Post-Test Materials Permitted – This year students who finish a testing session will be able to read books, pamphlets, magazines or periodicals (not related to classroom instruction/testing material) and pens/colored pencils.
New Science Assessment – Grade 5 will have 1 test session for a total of 53 minutes.
