Overview
Through the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), states came together in early 2010 to develop new student tests that measure career- and college-learning standards and help prepare students for success in college and the workforce. This state collaborative effort will result in an innovative, affordable assessment of college- and career-readiness and deeper learning outcomes. Hewlett Foundation support would increase PARCC’s long-term sustainability by increasing the number of participating states and the number of students served.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of high-quality statewide student assessments  
PARCC supports schools and districts to meet the growing demand for flexibility in the development of high-quality summative assessments, including managing the content produced by the PARCC consortium. CenterPoint, a fiscally sponsored project of PARCC will provide diagnostic and interim assessments from PARCC, instructional tools, and professional learning services for teachers. Scalable measures that support robust academic knowledge, higher-order thinking skills, and academic mindsets will help ensure that at least 15 percent of U.S. students are being assessed on deeper learning-aligned outcomes.
for research on PARCC assessment results to identify successful instructional policies and practices  
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a set of assessments that measure whether students are on track to succeed. PARCC will oversee a "positive deviance" study of scores on its summative test to identify high performance by low socioeconomic status students and to learn which practices contributed to the success of this particular group. Their work uses high-quality test results to inform systemic and instructional improvement.
