Breaking down the costs of the parcc Assessments

Most PARCC states have entered into contracts — each separately — with the primary PARCC test vendor, Pearson Education. The PARCC annual state tests in reading, writing and math cost $23.97 per student for computer-based administration of the assessment, plus a small administrative fee. Schools that need paper-based versions of the test may purchase those for slightly more.

The cost includes an English language arts/literacy test and mathematics test, both of which will include performance-based and short-answer test items.

The states and Pearson are working together to maintain competitive pricing at for the 2016-17 school year.
