  • Benefits:

  • Through-course assessments provide teachers information on their students performance at key points during the year, allowing them to adjust instruction and target interventions

  • Results will be returned quickly so they are more useful to schools

  • Assessments will measure more sophisticated, authentic performances

Role of technology

Role of Technology

  • Technology will be central to PARCC, providing cutting edge solutions to test development, administration, scoring and reporting

  • Integrated modular system and interoperable platform

  • Administration

    • Assessments delivered to schools online

    • Grades 6-11 and end-of-year 100% online administration

  • Item types

    • End-of-year: computer-enhanced, innovative items

    • Through-course components: searchable environments for student research and dynamic online calculators

  • Preprogrammed accommodations


Role of automated scoring

Role of Automated Scoring

  • PARCC’s computer-based assessments will:

    • Produce timely snapshots of students’ knowledge throughout the year

    • Give parents, students and teachers the ability to adjust accordingly rather than waiting until the end of the school year

  • PARCC assessments will be scored:

    • By a combination of automated and human scoring (with the end-of-year tests machine scored)

    • States will individually determine the extent to which teachers will be involved in scoring

  • By using automated scoring, scores can be returned more quickly to students and teachers, allowing for a quicker response to the data provided.
