The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is the state assessment and accountability measure for Illinois students enrolled in a public school district. PARCC assesses the New Illinois Learning Standards Incorporating the Common Core and will be administered in English Language Arts and Mathematics.
PARCC assessments in English Language Arts and Mathematics will be administered to all students in grades 3-8.
UnderstandtheScore.org is designed to help parents and community members know what to expect when their children's score reports arrive at home.
Illinois is in a time of opportunity and innovation across all of our accountability assessments. Understandably there are questions about what assessments will look like in the 2018-19 school year and beyond. Read a
letter from State Superintendent Dr. Smith, about the future of assessment in grades 3 through 8.
Administrators and educators are encouraged to use these documents as an additional resource to share with the PARCC test’s individual student reports so parents can read a more in-depth explanation of their students’ scores and the various performance levels.
