PARCC Mathematics

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a consortium of 14 states that are working together through a Race to the Top assessment grant to develop a K-12 assessment system aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English language arts/literacy and mathematics.

See the PARCC main page for information about the PARCC assessment consortium, test administration, and updates.

    "On the Road to Implementation: Achieving the Promise of the Common Core State Standards" identifies the key areas that state policymakers will need to consider to implement the new standards with fidelity. The guide is organized by topic with short chapters. It's not meant to be an exhaustive review or a checklist of all the issues that states and districts will need to consider as they move from adoption of the CCSS to implementation. Rather, it's meant to be the starting point from which state and district leaders and their allies can organize and begin the necessary discussions around key topics to successfully implement the standards.
