The PARCC Tests: Modern, high-Quality assessments

Most states voluntarily adopted new, more rigorous academic standards in 2010 and 2011 and teachers have been using them in their daily instruction. As a result, states needed high-quality assessments aligned to those standards that would test students of all achievement levels on what they are learning.

Many current state tests measure only lower-level skills. The new assessments serve as an "educational GPS system," assess students’ current performance, and point the way to what students need to learn by graduation so they are ready for college and/or a career.
