The New MCAS is called PARCC

Massachusetts may be joining a number of states who will be using the PARCC Test in conjunction with the adoption to the Common Core Curriculum Standards.  The presentations linked below were from the spring Superintendents’ Association gathering.  The first contain national information and sample questions.  The second is from the MA DESE.  It is important to note that MA has not officially made a decision as to whether to adopt the PARCC Test although we are to prepare to implement the computer-based assessment during the 2014-15 school year.
