Bigger Picture Alert: PARCC Is Not Like Any Other Standardized Test

Have you heard comments like these:

"My child will do just fine on the PARCC test." 
"The concerns about PARCC are just about the technology."
"My child should be able to face challenges and this test is just one of them." 
"My child will take the test - but knows it will not count."

Bigger Picture Alert

Common Core State Standards are NOT just standards
the PARCC is not just like any other standardized test. 

Pay attention to the instruction of your child.

Has instruction been distorted?
