The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a set of assessments that measure whether students are on track to be successful in college and their careers.The PARCC assessments, which are aligned to the Common Core State Standards, will be available for states to administer beginning in the 2014-15 school year.
