“A Snapshot Look at the PARCC Assessments for English Language Arts”


Teachers are seeking answers to many questions relating to PARCC and the Common Core. What types of items will we see on the PARCC assessments for English Language Arts? How are the various types of items being created?   How can we use this information to help us continue our transition to PARCC and the new assessments? Join one of the focused sessions listed below as we discuss these and other questions about the new English Language Arts assessments:

*Performance Level Descriptors (PLDs)

*Task Prototypes and New Sample Items

*Draft rubrics to help support a stronger understanding of how writing will be assessed, and what the Prose Constructed Response items are asking students to know and be able to do
