Understanding the PARCC Score Report for English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics Tests

  • Thursday, 03 August 2017

PARCC reports will be available at the student's home school beginning August 14, 2017.

The 2016-2017 school year was the second year of the PARCC assessments for English Language Arts/Literacy and mathematics which align to the Maryland College and Career-Ready Standards. The tests measure complex skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, with an emphasis on supporting an argument and synthesis in writing. The PARCC assessments require students to read, write, and reflect; analyze and show results; and utilize information from multiple sources in a real-world context. PARCC scores should be used along with a student's classroom performance, report card grades, and teacher feedback to form a clear picture of a student's progress toward meeting academic standards.
