The release of the 2014-15 school year Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) results represents an opportunity to communicate a new baseline for where students stand on their path to success. It is critical that we use this opportunity to effectively communicate with educators and parents about what these scores mean for students and how to interpret the new score reports. Below you will find optional tools that OSSE has developed for you to personalize to communicate with parents and educators.
2014-15 PARCC Results Release Resources
- PARCC Instructional Tools and Score Reports Workshop: PowerPoint from sessions OSSE hosted in June 2015 to provide LEA staff with a refresher on PARCC test design, individual student score reports, data files, and other resources available to support use of PARCC results for instructional planning in advance of the 2016 results release.
- PARCC Data User Guide: A guide for LEAs and schools to analyze data files to inform instructional planning.
- PARCC Released Item Map: A cross walk for LEAs to use alongside their 2015 released item data to crosswalk and analyze standard and evidence-statements.
- Frequently Asked Questions from Families: A guide for teachers, principals and LEA leaders to prepare for and respond to questions about the new PARCC assessment and spring 2015 results.
- PARCC Overview: PowerPoint with context on how PARCC establishes a new baseline for students’ success. Personalize final slide to include specific points of contact for your LEA.
