Massachusetts PARCC Trial
PARCC is the new Common Core-based electronic testing system that will be implemented in many states across the country over the next few years. This year, Pine Glen and the other schools in Burlington are going to be trial sites for this new evaluation system. Students in different grade levels will take the assessment using different devices.
All information about the trial program, with frequent updates, will be posted on massparcctrial.org. Check it out to find out about the preparations being made, and then to see what we find out as we go through the trial testing periods later this year.
Additionally, you can find the Grades 3-5 sample test questions here if you want to get a feel for the kinds of tasks our students will be asked to do.
