Keep up with what's happening at PARCC.
The practice tests were developed so that students, parents, and teachers alike - not just those states involved in PARCC testing - can experience PARCC test items as they appear on the tests.
Try out sample test questions on the technology platform that students will experience during the real testPO here. Teachers, students, parents and others can engage with the sample items using computer-based tools such as drag-and-drop, multiple select, text highlighting, and an equation builder.
In case you missed it last fall, The PARCC consortium is developing online training modules to help teachers, school leaders, and testing coordinators understand the new PARCC assessment system and put the high-quality assessments to work for them and their students. The tools help educators learn how to read results from the assessments, make inferences about the results, and identify learning gaps.
