PARCC Scores and Score ReportsPARCC score reports are designed to identify where a student needs help or is excelling by providing more and better information to teachers and parents so they can enhance instruction to meet individual student needs. This information is shared through sophisticated online reports for schools and teachers, and through an informative, easy-to-understand printed report for parents.
The score report provides clear and meaningful information about the extent to which students are acquiring and mastering the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in school, and to progress toward college and career readiness by the time they graduate.
The design of the score report, like the test itself, was informed by the participation of classroom teachers and other educators and parents from the PARCC states.

The reports use graphics, colors and detailed descriptions to show how each student performed on the English language arts/literacy and mathematics portions of the test. The reports will show how well children are meeting the knowledge and skills expected of students at their grade level, and how their performance compares to peers in the school, district, and multi-state consortium. The reports also contain helpful links for parents to access more information. The report is intended to help you work with your child's teachers and school officials on how best to support your student’s needs.

The parent score report was updated for spring 2016 to provide greater understanding through clearer graphics and language. Most states have already released their statewide score results, and parent score reports will arrive in most local school districts by the middle of September.
