PARCC Testing

Understanding Your Child's PARCC Scores

 Parent reports of student scores are compiled by the New Jersey Department of Education. The results of the 2014-15 Spring test period were received in our district offices in mid-December and were sent out to homes immediately upon sorting, stuffing and processing them for mailing. This year, there is only one PARCC Testing period, but we have not yet been advised when parents should expect score reports
Since this is a new test, it is important for you to understand the resulting scores and what they mean to your child's academic success. We have compiled some of the resources provided by the state that we believe may be most helpful in that regard.
Should you have questions that remain unanswered, please speak with your child's teacher. Remember that this is a single assessment of your child's skills. Together with a student's grades, teacher feedback and scores on other tests, the PARCC test score report will help give a more complete picture of how well your child is performing academically.
Here's another website that offers an explanation of the test results, as well as a video presentation by teachers that walks you through a sample report:
This page offers a number of videos explaining various aspects of the PARCC Test and its results.
