The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a consortium featuring eight states, the District of Columbia, and the Bureau of Indian Education, that work to create and deploy a standard set of K–12 assessments in Mathematics and English, based on the Common Core State Standards.
What does PARCC measure?
PARCC is a group of states working together to develop a modern assessment that replaces previous state standardized tests.
Ensures that all students, regardless of income, family background or geography, have equal access to world-class education that will prepare them for success after high school in college and/or careers.
Measures real world skills, such as problem solving and critical thinking, and measures students' achievements.
