Plans for Reporting Results and
Performance Level Setting
The Second Annual New Jersey Leadership Summit
January 21, 2015
Jeffrey Nellhaus
Chief of Assessment, PARCC, Inc.
Objectives for this morning …
1. Priorities
Provide a brief review of the priorities that drive PARCC
2. Reports of Results
You will become knowledgeable about the kinds of metrics and
reports that will be used to report the results of the PARCC
assessments next fall
3. Performance Level Setting (aka standard setting)
You will be knowledgeable about the process PARCC intends to
conduct this summer to identify the threshold scores for each of its
five performance levels

Priority Purposes
 Determine whether students are
college- and career-ready or “on track”
 Provide tools to assess student
learning and support instruction
during the school year
 Report comparable results across
schools, districts and member states
 Generate data, including growth
metrics, for accountability uses
 Use technology to
increase student access
and engagement, and
create efficiencies

PARCC Score Report Design Study
• PARCC conducted a 5-month, multi-phase Score Report
Design Study to establish priorities for the kinds of data the
reports should include and how they should be presented.
• Stakeholders providing input included:
Teachers and Administrators (Central Office and Building)
Parents
Higher Education Representatives
PARCC state education leadership
PARCC Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)

Data Management & Reporting System
• PARCC score reports will be available to local educators online
through its interactive web-based Data Management and Reporting
System, and to parents via a printed student reports
• PARCC’ web-based system will provide authorized users to customize
reports using the following “filters”

Performance Level Setting

PARCC Performance Levels
• PARCC will report results using five performance levels
(names under discussion)
• Students performing at Levels 4 or 5 on Algebra II,
Integrated Math 3, or ELA/L grade 11 assessments will earn
a College- and Career-Ready Determination
• Public colleges and universities in PARCC states have
agreed to allow students who have been accepted and
have earned CCR Determinations to enter directly into
credit-bearing courses without remediation

Performance Level Setting:
What Process Will be Used?
PARCC will Use an Evidence-Based Process
• The process combines expert judgment with data from
research
• The process will generate threshold scores that
– Reflect PARCC’s performance level descriptors (PLDs)
– Are consistent with the results reported by other well-regarded
state, national and international assessment programs
• Because comparability is a priority, every state will adopt
the same threshold scores
23
Performance Level Setting: Training
Panelists will:
• Practice with online tutorial
• Take the computer-based assessment
• Review the performance level descriptors (PLDs)
• Write “borderline” performance level descriptors
(PLDs)
• Practice with the process
24
Proposed Performance Level Setting Method
Yes/No Method (proposed)
Review test items
• Answer the
question:
• Based on the
PLDs, would a
student
performing at
Level X be
likely to
answer the
item correctly?
Impact data
• Impact data
includes:
• Empirical data
from research
• Judgments of
other panelists
• % of students
performing at
each level
• % who got
item correct
Multiple Rounds
• After an initial round
of review, panelists
discuss their
judgments, are given
certain impact data
and conduct a
second round of
review,
• After the second
round, panelists
discuss their
judgments again, are
given additional data
and conduct a third
and final round.

• She read for 26 minutes on Monday.
• She read for 39 minutes on Tuesday.
• She read for 38 minutes on Thursday.

Research to Inform the Performance Level
Setting Process
• Research Questions
– What percentage of students are likely to be college- and career-ready,
according to PARCC’s definition?
– What percentage of students are likely to be on track to college and career
readiness at earlier grades?
• Two studies to inform performance level setting
Postsecondary

Judgment Study
Benchmark Study
SAT
ACT
