PARCC assessments in New Jersey are designed to provide more accurate, honest information so teachers, parents and students can work together to make sure kids are on track for their next steps in school and beyond high school.
Recent independent studies have found PARCC is a high quality assessment, aligns to New Jersey’s standards, and is a better predictor of college readiness than previous assessments.
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 improved score reports feature valuable, customized information on student score results, in an easy-to-read, simple format.
