Who Knew? Research Tasks are REALLY important in PARCC | Common Core State Testing | Scoop.it

This month, the PARCC testing group (one of the two state consortia responsible for creating assessments for the Common Core State Standards, or CCSS) has released sometesting guidance. If your state has adopted CCSS, they belong either to the Smarter Balanced or PARCC consortia.

What’s interesting about the PARCC testing is that it has two parts, and the performance-based assessments (PBAs) makes research one of the three core ELA testing areas.
