The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)

During the spring of 2016, students throughout New Jersey will participate in the PARCC assessment. The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a computer-based assessment in English Language Arts and Mathematics skills for students in grades 3-11. PARCC has replaced the NJASK/HSPA for these grade levels.

To assist you in understanding this assessment, the West New York School District has compiled a “Frequently Asked Questions” sheet, accessible via this link. Click HERE for Frequently Asked Questions sheet.

Some key points to consider:

  • This year, PARCC will be administered once: beginning April 4, 2016 through April 29, 2016.
  • The testing is done online using the following equipment: Desktops, Laptops, and Chrome Books.
  • NJASK Science testing in grades 4 and 8 will still be administered via pencil and paper.
  • Accommodations will be made for students as appropriate.
  • As a result of our focus and planning, the West New York District exceeds all recommendations provided by PARCC and the NJDOE in the area of technology readiness.

Since the state requires that districts have at least 95 percent of students participating in the test, (districts could potentially lose state or federal funding if they do not meet that rate), the district is obligated to administer the exam to all eligible students.

Our District is committed to ensuring that our students are prepared to be successful in college and their careers. We will continue our efforts to provide high quality curricula, aligned to the Common Core State Standards, to facilitate our students’ success.
