Setting Academic Performance Standards: MCAS vs. PARCC. Technical Report. Policy Brief
Phelps, Richard P.
Political realities dictate that, as with any tests, passing scores on those developed by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) will be set at a level that avoids having an unacceptable number of students fail. Since Massachusetts is by far the highest performing of the states that remain in the PARCC consortium, the commonwealth's K-12 education standards have the farthest to fall.
