  • What Is PARCC


    The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, also known as PARCC, is a Common Core-aligned assessment designed to measure the progress of students in 11 states. The PARCC test covers Math and English Language Arts progress from third to eleventh grade. In addition, it is nearly entirely computer-based. Most schools administer the PARCC on a computer, though some still use the paper and pencil format.

    Schools have a 30-day time window to administer the test, but most will finish it within a week or two.

    PARCC Sections


    The PARCC test contains three ELA units and four Math units. The time per unit changes with the grade, as can be seen in the following table:

    PARCC Scores


    PARCC score reports divide students' scores into five different performance levels, each demonstrating the different degrees of knowledge and skills accumulated by the students:

    Level Description Score Range

    1

    Did not yet meet expectations

    650–699

    2

    Partially met expectations

    700–724

    3

    Approached expectations

    725–749

    4

    Met expectations

    750–809

    5

    Exceeded expectations

    810–850


    PARCC scores may become part of the graduation requirements in some of the aligned states starting in 2016. This test may also play a role in determining if a student should be held back. Therefore, it is crucial to prepare to ensure a score of three or above. Only students who score 4 and above receive a certification of readiness as part of their graduation.
