Chester-East Lincoln students in grades 3-8 will take the PARCC assessment again this spring. PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) is the state mandated assessment that assesses English Language Arts (ELA) and Math and is aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

This year the PARCC assessment will begin in March. The testing window for our district is March 5-March 23. Your student will take the PARCC assessment online sometime during the testing window. The schedule is attached and will also be available on the school website. The PARCC assessment includes 6 or 7 units, depending on your student’s grade level. 

Sample tests and test items can be accessed at:

On the days your child is scheduled to test, please make sure they eat a healthy breakfast and are well rested. Please try to avoid scheduling appointments or being absent on the days your child is scheduled to test.
