The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) today released the draft grade- and subject-specific performance level descriptors (PLDs) in English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics for public comment. Performance levels, sometimes referred to as "achievement levels," are the broad, categorical levels used to report student performance on an assessment, and the PLDs further describe what that performance means.

These new draft grade- and subject-specific PLDs further articulate the knowledge, skills, and practices that students performing at a given level should be able to demonstrate in each content area at each grade level and to be on-track for college and career readiness.

From April 10 until May 8, 2013, the draft grade- and subject-specific PLDs are posted on the PARCC website. Interested parties can provide feedback through a survey posted on the PARCC website, answering questions specific to the PLDs for both ELA/literacy and mathematics.
