The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) has released the draft model to allow feedback from a wide group of stakeholders, including K-12 educators, curriculum and assessment experts, and postsecondary faculty.
The feedback will help identify the big ideas in the Common Core State Standards for each grade level and will help determine the focus for various PARCC assessments being developed by the 24-state consortium.
Through Aug. 17, the draft frameworks in English language arts/literacy and mathematics will be posted on the PARCC website. Interested parties can provide feedback through a survey also posted on the PARCC website, answering questions specific to their particular content area of interest.
All feedback will be reviewed by the developers of the frameworks and appropriate adjustments will be made. Final model content frameworks will be released in the fall.
