2 What is the PARCC?  PARCC stands for the Partnership for Assessment and Readiness for College and Career  The PARCC is given to students in grades 3-11 in Language Arts and Mathematics  There are two mandatory parts of the PARCC  PBA – Performance Based-Assessment (March 2-27)  EOY – End of Year Assessment (April 27-May 22)  The PARCC is based off of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)

3 Wait – What is the Common Core?  The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are a set of sequential benchmarks that identify what a child needs to have learned and be able to do by the end of each grade.  The ultimate goal is for each student to graduate ready and able to move on to college or into a career. ~ Wayne Township Public Schools

4 Wait – What is the Common Core?  Educators from 45 states worked together to create a uniform set of expectations for all students.  The standards were developed by a partnership with the states, teachers, school administrators, education experts, parents, and business leaders from around the country. ~ Wayne Township Public Schools

5 Wait – What is the Common Core?

6 Why the PARCC instead of NJASK? Current assessments do not:  Assess and identify whether a student is on track for success in college or the work force  Accurately identify how students compare to students in the state, country and the rest of the world  Produce timely feedback for educators and parents as a result of being a computer based assessment  Test skills of critical thinking and problem solving ~ Wayne Township Public Schools

7 PARCC States  Arkansas Arkansas  Colorado Colorado  District of Columbia District of Columbia  Illinois Illinois  Maryland Maryland  Massachusetts Massachusetts  Mississippi Mississippi  New Jersey New Jersey  New Mexico New Mexico  New York New York  Ohio Ohio  Rhode Island Rhode Island

8 PARCC isn’t the only test… 17 states are using the Smarter Balanced test. Smarter Balanced is a different computer-based test that is also based on Common Core. California Connecticut Delaware Hawaii Idaho Maine Missouri Montana Nevada New Hampshire North Dakota Oregon South Dakota Vermont Washington West Virginia Wisconsin

9 How is GE preparing?  MAP Testing (September, December, February)  Tutoring  Classroom Tutoring  Homework Club  Typing Club  PARCC Practice Testing  Special Needs Students – Paper & Pencil Test

10 PARCC Testing Times

11 How does PARCC impact GE? Individual Student Achievement  Does not affect grade level  Do not consider scores for retention  Will use to target assistance for students

12 How does PARCC impact GE? Teacher/Administrator Evaluation  Teachers & Administrators are evaluated on their Student Growth Percentile (SGP)  SGPs monitor how much students grow compared to other students with similar scores  For the school year, 10% of the teacher evaluation (4 th /5 th only) will be based on SGPs from PARCC  A portion of the Administrator Evaluation score is based on SGP

13 How does PARCC impact GE? School/District Achievement  The SY assessment will provide baseline Progress Targets. We will not be compared to last year’s Progress Targets.  Our SGPs will be compared from last year to this year (4 th /5 th only).  We will be compared only to other New Jersey schools.

14 What’s next….  Questions about the PARCC  Language Arts Practice Test  Mathematics Practice Test
