This year, the PARCC is starting on the 10th of May and ending on the 24th. As we all know, the PARCC was new last year, and is going to continue this year. People have different opinions about it, good and bad. PARCC mean Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career.
I personally think that the PARCC is fine. I liked the 90 minute timeline, but I felt the questions on the MCAS were better. I also preferred the English PARCC over the English MCAS because there were less prompts you had to read, unlike the MCAS which had at least five for each section.
I asked Megan Zeik, a 6th grader about the PARCC. All she said is that it was boring.
Even if we do or don't like the PARCC testing, we have to do it, and it is important to the state. So, get your pencils out, because the PARCC is coming up soon.
