In spring 2014, the PARCC Field Test will be administered to over one million students across PARCC states. Some students in District 168 will participate in the field testing. PARCC stands for Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career. This test will take the place of ISAT next year.
The field test will be conducted in a random selection of schools and students across PARCC states.
While the field test assessments are designed to mirror those that will be used in the first PARCC administration in 2014-2015, most students participating in the field test will only take one part of the whole assessment in one content area in order to minimize testing burden on individual students and schools.
