Instruction and Assessment Resources
In the 2014-15 school year, New Jersey transitioned from its former assessments to the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) in mathematics and English language arts. The PARCC assessments more accurately measure the higher-level skills developed under the New Jersey Student Learning Standards and provide parents and educators with meaningful information to improve teaching and learning.
Starting in 2015, districts began to distribute annual PARCC student score reports to parents. There are resources on this assessment site to assist with interpreting individual score reports that can give parents a common language to use in discussions with teachers about their child's progress.
