### PARCC Released Items

The states that make up the PARCC consortium have taken the exceptional step of releasing test items from current and recent year’s PARCC assessment to give teachers a powerful tool to inform and improve classroom teaching and learning. The test items were built with robust mathematics problems and authentic reading passages selected and reviewed extensively by dozens of educators from PARCC states.

### PARCC Materials

The released materials include scoring rubrics and guides to the scoring, as well as released item sets, answer keys, standards alignment, and sample student responses – scored and annotated. A significant number of these test questions and supporting instructional resources are now available here on the Partner Resource Center.

PARCC has also developed a resource library called the Partnership Resource Center, which provides both teachers and parents with access to “computer-adaptive text complexity diagnostic tools”. ^{}This initiative is designed to ensure students have access to appropriate-level texts and are prepared to enter college and careers at the right level.

The PARCC assessment is in the process of transitioning to a completely computer-based assessment system, and in the second year of assessments (2015–16), the vast majority of students who took the tests did so on a computer. The assessment platform of choice is TestNav provided by Pearson and the TAO Open Source platform has been chosen for non-summative assessment portions.^{}

When administering the PARCC assessment, states will be able to tailor the exams to their standards, classes, and other accountability tools that are unique to each state.
