PARCC Unveils Planning Tool for its 21st Century Assessments

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) today announced a new planning tool and guidance for schools and districts that will help them get ready for the PARCC assessments in the 2014-15 school year.  Here is the link to the planning tool http://www.parcconline.org/assessment-administration-guidance.  The PARCC assessments will include a "rich set of performance-based tasks that address a long-standing concern among educators about large school, pencil and paper assessments - they have been unable to caputure some of the most important skills that we strive to develop in students."  The PARCC assessments will enable teachers, schools, students and their parents to gain "important insights into how well critical knowledge, skills and abilities essential for young people to thirive in college and careers are being mastered in ways that only computer-based assessments can measure." (PARCC)
