PARCC Assessment Overview, Test Dates & Resources

The PARCC assessment is a test of the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. Due to the alignment of our district ELA and Mathematics curriculum with these standards, the content and skills assessed by the PARCC are familiar to our students. Our students also receive PARCC assessment practice in their PARCC-tested courses. Each year, we work to fulfill our mission of exceeding the expectations of state-adopted standards through the use of rigorous curriculum and classroom instruction.

The Lenape Regional High School District’s Spring 2017 PARCC testing will take place from March 28th through April 7th, 2017. The schedule supports our district’s academic mission by minimizing intrusion to instruction. Testing will only occur during the morning wheel, and classes will rotate in the afternoon. As required by state law, all 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students, as well as seniors enrolled in 9th, 10th, or 11th grade English, will be administered the PARCC in ELA as listed below. In addition, students in grades nine through twelve enrolled in Algebra 1, Geometry, Intro to Algebra 2, and Algebra 2 will take the PARCC assessment in those courses. Intro to Algebra 2 students will take the Algebra 1 PARCC. Students who “doubled up” in math by taking Geometry with Algebra 1 or 2 will not take the Geometry assessment. As the testing dates approach, further information regarding the schedule will be posted.
