This spring, all third, fourth, and fifth grade students in the state of Maryland will take the PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) assessment in reading and mathematics. Testing dates for each grade are listed below. There is nothing special that you need to do to prepare your child for the assessment, other than ensure a good night’s sleep the night before and a good breakfast that morning. If you have purchased school headphones for your child, he or she will use those. If you did not purchase school headphones, your child may bring his or her own from home on testing days. Otherwise, communal headphones will be available.
Please avoid scheduling travel and appointments on the testing dates for your child’s grade.
If you have any questions about the PARCC assessment, please contact your child’s teacher.
