PARCC Testing Schedule 2016-17
 Literacy and Mathematics for Grades 7-8

HMS students in grades 7-8 will take the PARCC assessments in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics in April.  Specific dates & times for the 2016-17 assessments are yet to be determined. 

The English Language Arts assessments focus on reading critically across a range of texts; writing effectively when analyzing text; and building and presenting knowledge through research and the integration of ideas. The Mathematics assessments focus on conceptual understanding and application of math content, expressing mathematical reasoning and modeling real-world problems. 

While the English Language Arts assessments are grade-level specific, the Mathematics assessments include grade-level and subject-specific assessments.  Most students will take either Math-7 or Math-8 whereas those students currently enrolled in Algebra I or Geometry  will take the Algebra I or Geometry assessments respectively.
