GreatSchools and the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) announced today the new GreatKids Test Guide for Parents.

GreatSchools developed the Test Guide as a roadmap for parents. The Guide explains, in plain English and Spanish, what students are expected to learn in grades 3-8 and how the PARCC test assesses student learning. It explains what knowledge and skills are needed for each area of the test and which parts are especially tough for kids; and it offers easy ways to boost a child’s skills at home. 

The Guide—which has also been created for parents with kids in the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) states—is available for parents in states using PARCC, including: Arkansas, Colorado, District of Columbia, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio and Rhode Island.
