Illinois students participate in pilot tests to prepare for new assessments tied to states’ more challenging learning standards
Students in nearly half of Illinois schools will participate this spring in a limited amount of field testing to prepare for next year’s new, more rigorous assessment system
SPRINGFIELD – Students in Illinois schools will take a practice test this spring that will help them become familiar with next year’s line of new assessments in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics and provide state policy makers and educators with valuable feedback before the tests are finalized. These new state tests, developed through a group of states called the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), are aligned to Illinois’ new learning standards and aim to deliver clear and timely information about what students know and can do and whether they can demonstrate the academic preparation necessary to succeed as citizens and in college and careers.
