The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a modern assessment that not only evaluates each student's progress in reading, writing and math, but also provides better information for teachers and parents to identify where students need help, or are excelling, so they are able to enhance instruction to meet students' individual needs. Not just a multiple-choice bubble test, PARCC challenges students to think, solve real-world problems, and explain their answers. The online format makes answering the questions more engaging.
New Information on the 2015-16 reports from the NJDOE
As a result of our continued efforts to improve how parents access and use PARCC information, the PARCC student report was updated with a modified design. The PARCC Individual Student Report (ISR) provides information on how individual students performed on the 2015-16 administration of the PARCC assessments.
