This week, District 7 3rd -8th grade students and high school students enrolled in select courses will participate in the PARCC (Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Career) assessments.
The PARCC assessment is one test with two parts. Students took the first part, known as the performance-based assessment (PBA) in March. The PBA measured critical thinking, reasoning and application skills through “extended tasks” such as written answers or multi-step math problems.
The end-of-year assessment (EOY), being administered this week, consists of short answer questions and questions that measure skills like reading comprehension, vocabulary and math proficiency.
The Illinois State Board of Education has informed us that we can anticipate test results after Thanksgiving. We will share those results with you as they become available.
