Spring 2017 PARCC administration is currently ongoing in Illinois, Colorado, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, and Rhode Island (along with schools managed by the federal Bureau of Indian Education), and to date, more than 1 million assessments have been administered. The District of Columbia is the last jurisdiction to begin PARCC testing, with schools in the nation's capital beginning administration this coming week. To find out when your local school district is administering tests, please contact them directly.
The PARCC consortium website has resources for students, parents, and teachers to learn more about the assessments, how they are designed, and the ways they have been built to be accessible to all students. The site also features practice tests, answer keys for authentic items from previous years' assessments, links to technology readiness tools, a checklist for parents, and much more, including resources from partners like the National PTA, Learning Heroes, and GreatKids.
