 Partnership for Assessment of Readiness
for College and Careers (PARCC) Testing
 
As you may be aware, the first week in March marks the opening of our mid-year Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) Testing window. While the testing window remains open throughout the month of March, Tabernacle Township Schools will administer the PARCC Test on the following dates: 
 
Grade     Testing Dates  Make-up Testing Dates
 3    March 4, 5, 16, 17, 18  March 6, 9, 19, 20, 26, 27
 4    March 2, 3, 23, 24, 25  March 6, 9, 19, 20, 26, 27
 5    March 16, 17, 18, 23, 24  March 20, 25, 26, 27
 6    March 16, 17, 18, 23, 24  March 20, 25, 26, 27
 7    March 2, 3, 4, 5, 6  March 20, 25, 26, 27
 8    March 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
 March 20, 25, 26, 27
   
The PARCC Assessment will test students’ knowledge of Language Arts and Mathematics. Any student taking Algebra I or Geometry will be given that version of the test, rather than the standard grade level Mathematics portion. Total testing time for individual students on the PARCC is estimated at approximately 5 hours over the course of 5 days.
 
Prior to the PARCC assessment, our students took the NJASK Test in specific subject areas. The NJASK will now be used only for Science and only in Grades 4 and 8. This assessment will be administered on May 27th, with make-ups on May 28th. 
 
This is the first year New Jersey students will be administered a computer-based statewide assessment. They have been familiarized with the use of the computer and the necessary functions required to test. Information about the PARCC assessment is available at www.state.nj.us/education.
 
In helping your children prepare for these testing situations, they should have a good night’s rest and a well-balanced morning meal to be able to demonstrate their best abilities on these state assessments. We value your partnership in education and trust that you will support us during the administration of these assessments.
