PARCC and GreatSchools Launch GreatKids Test Guide for Parents

PARCC and GreatSchools Launch GreatKids Test Guide for Parents

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.
