PARCC Data Year One: A Study Year
As discussed in our meetings last year, we will proceed carefully with the use of PARCC data in the first few testing cycles. We all have many questions regarding the mountain of data coming our way; it will be our practice to study the data at the district and school levels first in order to better understand how the PARCC assessment may be used to measure and improve our programs and curriculum. The administrative team will be attending workshops over the next three months that will assist us in understanding how best to drill down into the data. We will then work with classroom teachers to do the same. This is a huge learning curve for all of us. We will need ample time and space in order to do this well.
The New Jersey Department of Education is scheduled to begin releasing the data in portions throughout November and December of this year. Over the next six weeks, we anticipate receiving the district data and individual score reports (ISR) for students. The links below will provide you with a view of mock student reports to begin to familiarize yourself with how they will look for your child(ren). As we shared with the community last spring, individual PARCC results will not be used for placement until we are comfortable and confident that it truly represents the student's knowledge and skill.
We will continue to keep you apprised of our progress and of the timelines for dissemination of the student-level data. We are also planning programs much like the ones we did last year for the PARCC administration to discuss the use of data. Stay tuned.
