PARCC Test Begins Monday, March 9

In March and May 2015, District 62 will administer the new required Illinois State achievement tests called PARCC (Partnership for the Assessment of College & Careers). PARCC, an online test, has been designed and adopted by the State to assess student knowledge and understanding of the New Illinois Learning Standards, also known as the Common Core State Standards.

Your child will take the state-required achievement tests between Monday, March 9 and Friday, March 27 – for ICS students, Monday, March 2 and Friday, March 20. Students in grades 3 through 8 will be tested in reading and mathematics. Your child’s teacher/school will communicate a more specific testing schedule.

Parents can help their child do his or her best on the test by:

  1. making sure, if possible, that children attend full days on the days of testing
  2. making sure children get a good night’s sleep the night before each testing day
  3. providing a healthy breakfast the morning of each testing day
  4. being certain your child has a healthy snack and lunch
  5. reminding children to ask teachers if they do not understand test directions
  6. letting children know that parents have confidence in their ability to do their best, and
  7. advising your child not to worry about the test, but to do the best that they can

Please feel free to call the school or your child’s teacher if you have further questions about these tests. More information may be found by visiting /www.isbe.state.il.us/assessment/htmls/parcc-primer.htm
