State testing is required by both state and federal law. The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, better known as PARCC is the state assessment and accountability measure for Illinois students enrolled in a public school district. PARCC assesses the New Illinois Learning Standards and will be administered to grades 3-8 in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Tests are administered so families know how their child is progressing toward college and career readiness and for districts to know if the curriculum they've chosen teach their students to the state learning standards is working, or if they should make adjustments. In Episode 10, Amy Van Hoose, Laura Michael, and Keri Roberts explain the tests, how the district uses them, and how you can help make sure your child is ready.
