Model Content Frameworks - Mathematics

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) developed the Model Content Frameworks for Mathematics to help:

  • Inform the development of item specifications and blueprints for the PARCC assessments, and
  • Support implementation of the Common Core State Standards

The PARCC Frameworks Browser presents the Model Content Frameworks in a more interactive way, creating a more accessible tool for users. Use the Frameworks Browser below to search the Model Content Frameworks by grade, component, or keyword. Use the links on the left side of the page to access introductory material and the appendices or to access a framework for a specific grade. PDF versions of the Model Content Frameworks are available on the In the Classroom page of the PARCC website.

Users are encouraged to start by reading the Mathematics Overview section, which gives background on how the Model Content Frameworks connect with the PARCC assessment system, explains the principles that guided development of the frameworks, and also gives an overview of the framework components.
