The Partnership Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) testing has been completed at Centennial High School. Students currently in Algebra I, Algebra II, or English 10 took the performance-based assessment from March 5-20.
Pamela West, assistant principal and director of the online exam, felt that the testing went well despite some technical difficulties. The technical issues were associated with the PARCC program, not the school’s computers.
“Overall, students were able to follow the charts and were in the right time and right place,” said West. West said that the school is discussing the technical issues with the Assessment Office..
Scores for testing are scheduled to be released in December. This is the first year that it is a mandatory requirement for graduation. The end of year testing for PARCC is set to begin on April 20-22.
