Maryland System, School Level Data Released For PARCC's Second Year

System and school-level results for the second year of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career (PARCC) tests were released on Tuesday.

The PARCC tests, first given in Maryland in 2015, measure student preparedness as they progress toward high school graduation and postsecondary options.

According to a release from the Maryland Department of Education, mathematics results reveal modest overall gains, while the English/language arts test scores showed little change.

They claim that PARCC exams are considerably more rigorous than the Maryland School Assessment tests they replaced in 2015.
