Keep up with what's happening at PARCC.
By implementing universal design principles, leveraging technology, and offering accommodations, PARCC intends to provide opportunities for the widest possible number of students to demonstrate what they know and can do while maintaining high expectations for all students. Driven by what is expected of students in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the claims of the PARCC summative assessments, common policies for accommodations, participation, and assessment accessibility features will increase equitable access, fidelity of implementation, and comparability across PARCC states.
