Keep up with what's happening at PARCC.
The Advisory Committee on College Readiness (ACCR) works with the PARCC Governing Board to shape the consortium’s strategy for working with postsecondary education systems, institutions, and K-12 to ensure the successful development of college readiness assessments that will be accepted as an indicator of readiness for first-year, credit-bearing courses by all colleges and universities across PARCC consortium states.
The committee will help ensure the college and career performance levels meet the needs of higher education in determining student readiness. The committee will also guide the work the consortium undertakes to develop and/or identify effective intervention programs to increase the number of graduating high school seniors who meet college readiness standards prior to enrollment.
