PARCC releases actual test items

The states that make up the PARCC consortium have released test items from the assessments given to students in the 2014-15 school year.

These specific items are now out of the pool of items that can be put on a test, but the format, difficulty, content, etc., are all similar to the items that will appear on actual tests in the future.

The items were released on October 23 to give teachers a powerful tool to inform and improve classroom teaching and learning. The test items were built with robust mathematics problems and authentic reading passages selected and reviewed extensively by dozens of educators from PARCC states.
