PARCC Design & Sample Items - ELA
Performance Based Assessment (PBA)
(3 Tasks focus on writing effectively & analyzing text)

Literary Narrative Task



Students need to read complex text closely, answer
EBSR & TECR questions, & compose an analytic
essay.
8th Grade Example: 7 items (6 EBSR or TECR; 1 PCR)
Narrative Task


Students may be asked to write a story, detail a
scientific process, write a historical account of
important figures, or to describe an account of
events, scenes, or objects, etc.
6th Grade Example: EBSR, TECR, 1 PCR

PARCC Design & Sample Items ELA
Performance Based Assessment (PBA)
3 Tasks

The Research Simulation Task
 Not traditional assessments. Designed to measure
more real-world skills: research, synthesis, writing.
 Grade 7 Example: 10 items (9 EBSR or TECR & 1
PCR)
 Students will read passage 1. Then, they will answer
associated EBSR & TECR questions. Students will
read passage 2 (and possible passage 3), and will
answer additional EBSR & TECR questions.
 Finally, students will respond to PCR.

End of Year Assessment (EOY)





Focuses on reading comprehension
Includes four to five texts (both literary and
informational)
Topics may draw from social science, history, science/
Text may be highly technical in nature.
EOY will include several short answer comprehension
and vocabulary questions for each text.

Scoring


In NJ, a teacher’s student growth percentile
(SGP) rating will be calculated from student
scores on the performance-based (PBA) and
end of year (EOY) assessments.
PARCC’s goal is to return PBA and EOY data to
schools by June.

Scoring



ELA/Literacy scores will be reported in 3 categories:
 ELA/Literacy
 Reading and comprehending a range of sufficiently
complex texts independently.
 Writing effectively when using and/or analyzing
sources.
Students’ scores will be based on a composite of
reading and writing scores.
For ELA/Literacy and Math

Students will receive both scaled and performance level
scores.

Scoring


Performance Level Descriptors (PLD) indicate the
knowledge, skills, & practices that students should be
able to demonstrate at each performance level, in each
content area (ELA/Literacy & Math), at each grade.
PARCC has five Performance Level Descriptors

PARCC Timing


The PBA and EOY assessments will be administered in 9
sessions:
 PBA: 5 Sessions (ELA: 3 Sessions; Math: 2 Sessions)
 EOY: 4 Sessions (ELA: 2 Sessions; Math: 2 Sessions)
The PBA and EOY will have a testing window of 20 days
each. However, schools can complete their testing in as
little as 5-9 days, technology and resources permitting.
Total Time on Task for Grades 6-8:
9 hours, 25 minutes
•Additional time will be allowed for students with disabilities, etc.
