Helping you to understand the Summative Assessments

The annual summative math tests are available in Grades 3-8 and high school. Students solve multi-step math problems that require reasoning and address real-world situations. This requires students to reason mathematically, make sense of quantities and their relationships to solve real-world problems, and show their understanding. Many previous assessments focused mostly on rote procedure only.

PARCC has released a set of test specification documents, including high-level assessment blueprints and evidence statement tables, to help educators and the general public better understand the design of the state summative assessments.

Performance-level descriptors describe what a typical student at each level should be able to demonstrate based on his/her command of grade-level standards.
