PARCC Testing Schedule 2016-17
Literacy and Mathematics for Grades 7-8
INFO TO COME
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.
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.
