New Student Assessments: Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)
Beginning March 9, EPG will administer the new PARCC assessment to our students for the first time. This new assessment, mandated by the Illinois Sate Board of Education, replaces the old ISAT and PSAE tests as a measure of student’s academic achievement. The new state assessment, originally adopted by twenty-six state and now being administered by only eleven states and the District of Columbia, is aligned to the Common Core Standards and the New Illinois Learning Standards, was designed to measure whether students are on track for success in college and careers.
