PARCC Committees

PARCC is leveraging a range of committees to provide the technical guidance and advice necessary for a successful design, development and implementation of the new assessment system


PARCC’s committees – which will be of varying sizes, compositions and charges – will tackle the technical issues (e.g., how to ensure PARCC is accessible to and accommodates all students), the implementation issues (e.g., how states can best transition to computer-based assessments), and the policy issues (e.g., what PARCC means for state policy), as well as the internal governance challenges associated with organizing a consortium of states around a new, next-generation assessment system. At the top of the committee structure is the PARCC Governing Board.
