PARCC testing

 

About

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a modern assessment that replaces previous state standardized tests. It not only evaluates a student's progress but also provides better information for teachers and parents to identify where a student needs help, or is excelling, so they are able to enhance instruction to meet individual student needs.

PARCC helps ensure that all students, regardless of income, family background or geography, have equal access to a world-class education that will prepare them for success after high school in college and/or careers.  New state standards set consistent expectations in English and mathematics for every student, and PARCC provides a valid and reliable evaluation of each student’s progress toward them.

2016 Test Data Analysis based on the PARCC assessment from Spring 2016 was presented at the Board of Education meeting on September 19, 2016.  Our district performance met or exceeded both state and national averages 14 of the 16 grade level content areas.  Our overall success on this rigorous online test is a reflection of the investment that our staff, students and parents have in high academic achievement.  The strong relationship between home and school that we enjoy in Milltown continues to be an essential part of supporting our students to reach their greatest potential.  On behalf of the Board of Education and Administration, I would like to thank you for partnering with us to support a shared vision of excellence for Milltown Public Schools.
