The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a consortium of 19 states (including the District of Columbia) working together to develop a common set of K-12 technology-based (online) assessments in English and Math anchored in what it takes to be ready for college and careers. These new K-12 assessments will build a pathway to college and career readiness by the end of high school, mark students’ progress toward this goal from 3rd grade up, and provide teachers with timely information to inform instruction and provide student support.
The PARCC assessments will be ready for states to administer during the 2014-15 school year and will replace the District of Columbia Comprehensive Assessment System (DC CAS).
