PARCC UPDATES & RESOURCES ~ From MSDE
We’re excited to announce the launch of the GreatKids Maryland Test Guide for Parents—a free, online tool organized by grade and subject to help parents use their state test scores to support their kids at home.
The Guide fills a critical need: specific, actionable information for parents and teachers, customized to the grade level of their students and described relative to the sections of the tests. It is available in English and Spanish for grades 3-8. To learn more, and use the guide, visit www.marylandtestguide.org
