PARCC requires Testing Throughout the Year

Source: StateImpact.Npr.Org, Jan 2013

The PARCC coalition will test students’ ability to read complex texts, complete research projects, excel at classroom speaking and listening assignments, and work with digital media. PARCC will also replace the one end-of-year high stakes accountability test with a series of assessments throughout the year that will be averaged into one score, reducing the weight given to a single test, and providing valuable information to students and teachers throughout the year.

Since the tests are in the process of being developed and there are no Common Core textbooks yet, teachers are crafting their own lessons to comply with Common Core standards.
