  • WHAT PARENTS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TESTING IN MARYLAND
    This school year, Maryland implemented new, higher standards for student learning in all schools across the State. The Maryland College and Career Ready Standards are based on the Common Core State Standards, which have been adopted by Maryland and over 40 other states, and provide students with the relevant, real world knowledge and skills needed for success in college and careers.
    In order to measure student mastery of the new standards, next year Maryland will implement new statewide tests – the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessments – which will replace the current statewide tests, the Maryland School Assessment (MSA). The MSA in reading/English Language Arts (ELA) and math will be given for the last time this spring and, as we begin the transition to the PARCC assessments, the Maryland State Department of Education has compiled a list of the ten most important things parents need to know about testing. To learn more about what your child will experience in school, please click on the link below:
