PARCC assessments in Maryland measure how well students are mastering the skills needed to succeed in school and beyond. The tests are designed to provide accurate information so that teachers, parents and students can work together now to ensure kids are on track for the next grade and prepared for what comes after high school. Recent independent studies have found PARCC aligns to the standards and assessment criteria that matter most.
Parents and guardians will receive score reports from their school district in late summer, summarizing how their student performed on the English language arts/literacy and mathematics tests. The score reports feature valuable, customized information on student score results, in an easy-to-read, simple format.
