  • Conceptual understanding of topics

  • Extend knowledge to real-life modeling and application


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

Field Testing: Spring 2014

For use starting in the 2014–15 school year


Getting all students college and career ready

Getting All Students College and Career Ready

Ongoing student support/interventions

Success In first-year, credit-bearing, postsecondary coursework

College readiness score to identify who is ready for college-level coursework

Optional K–2 assessment being developed, aligned to the Common Core State Standards

Timely data showing whether ALL students are on track for college and career readiness

Professional development for educators


Ela grade 7 sample item

ELA: Grade 7 Sample Item

  • Students read the text that introduces the topic

  • Items are designed to help students gather information from the texts to lead to the final writing prompt

  • Items require different types of responses to allow students to demonstrate a command of evidence with complex texts


Ela grade 7 sample item1

ELA: Grade 7 Sample Item

Part A: Highlight the claim that is supported by the most relevant and sufficient facts within “Earhart’s Final Resting Place Believed Found.”

Part B: Click on two facts within the article that best provide evidence to support the claim selected in Part A.


Ela grade 7 sample item2

ELA: Grade 7 Sample Item


Math grade 3 sample item

Math: Grade 3 Sample Item

This a fairly traditional fraction task in a computer-based setting.

Unlike traditional multiple choice, it is difficult to guess the correct answer or use a choice elimination strategy and there is more than one correct solution.

Unlike paper and pencil tests, students can create a visual representation even though the task is scored automatically.


Math grade 3 sample item1

Math: Grade 3 Sample Item

Second part of multi-step problem, and, unlike traditional multiple choice, it is difficult to guess the correct answer or use a choice elimination strategy.


Math high school sample item

Math: High School Sample Item

Item has two possible solutions

Students have to recognize the nature of the equation to know how to solve

Technology prevents guessing and working backward

Administrative considerations for all students

Detailed guidelines will be included in the PARCC Test Administration Manual.

Principals may determine that any student may require one or more of the following test administration considerations, regardless of the student’s status as a student with a disability or an English learner:

Small group testing

Frequent breaks

Time of day

Separate or alternate location

Specified area or seating

Adaptive and specialized equipment or furniture

Parcc technology platform

PARCC Technology Platform

  • PEARSON’s TestNav platform has been selected for the Field Test (Spring 2014) and 1st Operational assessment in 2014-15.

  • TestNav will provide a Proctor Caching solution that will allow for test downloads to individual computers for testing and then uploads when testing is completed reducing the amount of bandwidth needed during test administration.

  • TestNav specifications (including bandwidth) will be released in August.

Change in performance level cut scores1

Change in Performance Level Cut Scores

  • Backmapping process was used with data from 2011 PSAE and 2008 8th grade ISAT

    • Equipercentile equating was used to determine performance categories

    • Maximizes the reliability of these data

  • Reliability and stability of the new performance levels was tested through analysis of trend data for all ISAT scores for five years
