A New Vision for Illinois Assessment:

Problems Worth Solving

Tests Worth Taking

October, 2013


What is parcc
What Is PARCC?

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers:

Made up of 19 states + DC and US Virgin Islands

KY and PA are participating states

Developing common, high-quality math and English language arts (ELA) tests for grades 3–11

Computer-based and linked to what students need to know for college and careers

For use starting in the 2014–15 school year


The Common Core State Standards are here and better standards require better tests.

Unlike many current tests, PARCC tests will be engaging and will test the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills students need to succeed in school and life.

Validity of interpretation for large-scale assessment data rests squarely on the close alignment of assessment items with curriculum.

Why New Assessments Now?


Parcc s fundamental advance
PARCC’s Fundamental Advance

PARCC is designed to reward quality instruction aligned to the Standards, so the assessment is worthy of preparation rather than a distraction from good work.


Parcc assessment priorities
PARCC Assessment Priorities

  • Determine whether students are college- and career-readyor on track

  • Compare performance across states and internationally

  • Assess the full range of the Common Core Standards, including standards that are difficult to measure

  • Measure the full range of student performance, including the performance of high and low performing students

  • Provide data during the academic year to inform instruction, interventions and professional development

  • Provide data for accountability, including measures of growth

  • Incorporate innovative approaches throughout the system


Parcc s core commitments to mathematics assessment quality
PARCC’s Core Commitments to Mathematics Assessment Quality

  • Focus: PARCC assessments will focus strongly on where the Standards focus. Students will have more time to master concepts at a deeper level.

  • Problems worth doing: Multi-step problems, conceptual questions, applications, and substantial procedures will be common, as in an excellent classroom.

  • Better Standards Demand Better Questions: Instead of reusing existing items, PARCC will develop custom items to the Standards.

  • Fidelity to the Standards: PARCC Evidence Statements are rooted in the language of the Standards so that expectations remain the same in both instructional and assessment settings.


What are the shifts at the heart of parcc s design
What Are the Shifts at the Heart of PARCC ’s Design?

  • Focus: The PARCC assessment will focus strongly where the Standards focus.

  • Coherence: Think across grades and link to major topics within grades.

  • Rigor: In major topics, pursue

    conceptual understanding,

    procedural skill and fluency,

    and application.


Research strategy for validation of college and career ready scores

Research Strategy for Validation of College and Career Ready Scores


Ccrd placement not admission
CCRD: Placement (modified by NOT Admission

A College and Career Ready Determination on the PARCC assessments indicate:

  • Mastery of the core competencies in the Common Core State Standards identified by postsecondary education faculty as prerequisites for and key to success in entry-level, credit-bearing courses in English and mathematics

  • Readiness for placement into entry-level, credit-bearing courses in ELA and mathematics

    A College and Career Ready Determination will not:

  • Determine admission to college or university

  • Replacecollege/university tests to place students into higher level mathematics and English courses

  • Address non-traditional students who delay enrollment

ECD is a deliberate and systematic approach to assessment development that will help to establish the validityof the assessments, increase the comparability of year-to year results, and increase efficiencies/reduce costs.

Evidence statement tables types of evidence statements
Evidence Statement Tables: (modified by Types of Evidence Statements

Several types of evidence statements are being used to describe what a task should be assessing, including:

  • Those using exact standards language

  • Those transparently derived from exact standards language, e.g., by splitting a content standard

  • Integrative evidence statements that express plausible direct implications of the standards without going beyond the standards to create new requirements

  • Sub-claim C & D evidence statements, which put MP.3, 4, 6 as primary with connections to content

Overview of task types
Overview of Task Types (modified by

  • The PARCC assessments for mathematics will involve three primary types of tasks: Type I, II, and III.

  • Each task type is described on the basis of several factors, principally the purpose of the task in generating evidence for certain sub claims.
