Perspectives
Assessment at its worst
Feels top down and compliance
driven
Assesses the wrong information
Does not have valuable
information that is actionable
Takes away time from
instruction
Assessment at its best
Motivates students using
feedback toward competence
Allows educators to challenge
assumptions
It allows us to see the scope and
sequence of understanding
across grade levels- from PK to
12th

#9 The NMPARCC Assessments will be
Given in 2 Separate Testing Windows
Tested Areas by Grade Level and
Sessions Per Window:
LCPS NMPARCC Test Dates for 2014-15
School Year:
PBA window: March 2 – March 20, 2015
Each student takes 3 sessions of ELA
Each student takes 2 sessions of Math
EOY window: April 20 – May 8, 2015
Each student takes 2 sessions of ELA
Each student takes 2 sessions of Math
#8 The Average Testing Time
Did NOT Increase
On average it will take a student a total of 9 hours to
complete NMPARCC, which includes 5 hours of PBA
and 4 hours of EOY.
This time is comparable to the time students took to
complete previous administrations of the NMSBA in
three days.
Keep in mind writing is assessed at every grade on
NMPARCC.
#7 All New Mexico Schools Can
Access PARCC Student
Sample Questions Online:
#6 NMPARCC Will Include a
Variety of Question Types in
Both ELA/Literacy and Math
All constructed response questions will
appear on the PBA to allow time for scoring
and return of results by the end of the year.
Both PBA and EOY will include multiple
choice/selected response questions.
Technology enhanced questions will be
manipulated by students using functions such
as drag and drop.
#5 NMPARCC Includes Writing for
All Assessed Grade Levels
60% of the ELA/Literacy assessment will
involve writing.
All passages used in NMPARCC ELA/Literacy
are developed from authentic texts.
Students will compose 3 pieces of prose
during the PBA session.
#4 NMPARCC Math Questions will
Have a Heavy Emphasis on the
Major Work of the Grade
60% of the math questions will focus on the
major content of the grade.
40% of the math questions will come from the
supporting and additional content standards.
The math practices will be incorporated
throughout the majority of the tested
content.
#3 PARCC is More Rigorous than
NMSBA
Math
Rigor: In major topics, pursue conceptual
understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and
application.
ELA/Literature
Rigor: Building knowledge through content rich
nonfiction; reading, writing and speaking grounded in
evidence from text, both literary and informational.
OK – Let’s Have Some Fun
PARCC – Let’s Have More Fun!
#2 Students will Have Accessibility
Features and Accommodations
Support when Taking NMPARCC
Unless a student is identified to take NMAPA/NCSC,
all students in grades 3 – H3 will take NMPARCC.
New Mexico has adopted the PARCC
Accommodations Manual (PAM).
Refer to PAM and the appendices for a full list of all
PARCC student supports.
PARCC is Designed to be
Accessible to Students with Disabilities
and English Learners
