Individual school, district and student performance results on last spring’s administration of the PARCC assessment are being made available to school districts.
Under state regulation, superintendents must report the results to boards of education within 60 days of receipt and school boards, in turn, must provide parents, students and citizens with the results.
NJSBA Video Series
Communicating this information to the public and using the data to benefit the educational program presents challenges and opportunities. To assist local school boards and school leaders in developing strategies to review the results and communicate about them, NJSBA has produced a series of videos. These informative programs feature Dr. Bari Erlichson, assistant commissioner/chief performance officer for the New Jersey Department of Education.
The video segments, part of NJSBA’s “Education Matters” series, are designed to help school districts address the release and review of individual school and district PARCC data. The videos can be accessed here.
The New Jersey Department of Education recently released additional PARCC scores to school districts. The electronic high school reports are now available for schools to download. Paper copies of the school reports, along with copies of individual student score results, should arrive in districts sometime this week. Districts will receive two paper copies of each student’s results; they can mail one to parents. The electronic versions of grades 3-8 score reports are scheduled to be available for download on Monday Nov. 23; paper copies will be delivered to districts between Nov. 30 and Dec. 11.
NJDOE has sent notification of the PARCC results release schedule to school administrators through the department’s broadcast email system.
