PARCC College- and Career-Ready Determination Policy in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics & Policy-Level Performance Level Descriptors
Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers
The "PARCC College- and Career-Ready (CCR) Determinations in ELA/literacy and mathematics" describe the academic knowledge, skills, and practices in English language arts/literacy and mathematics students must demonstrate to show they are able to enter directly into and succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing courses and relevant technical courses in those content areas at two- and four-year public institutions of higher education. The CCR Determination will provide policymakers, educators, parents, and students with a clear signal about the level of academic preparation needed for success in these postsecondary courses. It will provide a strong indicator of college and career readiness that can be used to set performance goals at any level and show progress towards those goals. Finally, students who attain a CCR Determination in ELA/literacy and/or mathematics will have a tangible benefit--direct entry into relevant entry-level, credit-bearing courses without need for remediation.
