PARCC is the formative state mandated assessment administered in the spring of each school year. All students, regardless of income, family background or geography, should have equal access to a world-class education that will prepare them for success after high school. New state standards set consistent expectations in English language arts/literacy and mathematics for every student, and the PARCC tests provide a valid and reliable evaluation of each student’s progress toward them. In fact, recent independent studies have found that PARCC aligns to the standards and assessment criteria that matter most.
States can administer PARCC in English language arts/literacy and mathematics for grades 3-8 and high school. The tests are fully accessible and were were developed based on years of research and development.
End of the Course Exam (EOCs) serve as the final exam when a course has been completed. In the elementary schools, EOCs are administered to 5th graders who have taken PE, Art/Music. They are administered at the middle school level and the high school level, serving as the final exam of a completed course. EOCs may be administered at the end of the first semester for students who have completed a course at that time. For some of our schools, EOCs are administered quarterly for those students who have completed a course within that time frame.
