PARCC Talking Points
As the PARCC assessment draws closer, I will be sending out informational updates to keep you abreast of important information about the test.
PARCC Testing Time Reduced This Year
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) Governing Board, made up of the state education commissioners and superintendents, has consolidated the two PARCC testing windows into one and reduced total test time by about 90 minutes. The decision came in response to feedback during the first year of testing and a careful review of the test design.
The changes will improve and simplify test administration for schools, teachers, and students, without diminishing the goal of the assessment—to ensure every student in every school is being taught what they need to know in order to be successful in the next school year and, ultimately, in college or career.
