PARCC Testing Continues
Check the calendar
to make sure you know when your child is taking the PARCC test in reading and
math. Students do much better when they
are rested and on time for school on test days.
As stated on the PARCC parent resource page, "the PARCC assessments
serve as an "educational GPS system," assessing students' current
performance, and pointing the way to what students need to learn to be ready for
the next grade level, for high school graduation, for college and/or a
assessments are designed to give schools and teachers more information to
improve instruction. Moreover, PARCC is designed to let parents know how their
child is progressing academically. This more detailed information can lead to a
strong engagement between parents and teachers." You can check out practice tests at http://www.parcconline.org/assessments/practice-tests.
