PARCC (Rhode Island)
What is the purpose of Rhode Island PARCC?
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a set of assessments that measure whether students are on track to be successful in college and their careers. These high quality assessments in Mathematics and English Language Arts/Literacy give teachers, schools, students, and parents better information whether students are on track in their learning and for success after high school, and tools to help teachers customize learning to meet student needs.
PARCC assessments are administered during a single testing window comprising up to 30 school days for computer-based testing and up to 20 school days for paper-based testing. To meet the specific needs of Districts/LEAs across the state administering tests online, RIDE has established a 40-day statewide PARCC testing window. Within this 40-day window, Districts/LEAs must choose 30 consecutive school days from which schools can set local testing schedules. Similarly for schools administering paper-based tests, RIDE has established a 30-day statewide PARCC testing window, during which Districts/LEAs must choose 20 consecutive school days from which schools can set local testing schedules.
