2014 MCAS/PARCC Assessment Information
For additional information, please refer to the Student Handbook.
2014 MCAS/PARCC Assessment Information - From The Superintendent:
PARCC will be replacing MCAS for most of BPS Students - The Massachusetts Board of Education
voted to accept a two-year transition plan to the PARCC assessment. Burlington will be participating in the Spring 2014 PARCC Field Test. Because our students are
participating in the PARCC, we have the option of opting out of MCAS English Language Arts and Math testing at all grades except grade 10. Our sophomores will have
to take both PARCC and MCAS due to both the state graduation requirement and to qualify for the Adams' scholarships. In other words, it appears that we will not be
administering the MCAS Test this year (aside from grade 10 and possible Science in grades 5,8,9). There are two testing windows for the PARCC assessments. The first,
for the Performance Based Assessment (PBA), is March 24 - April 11 and the second, for the End of Year Assessment (EOY), is May 19 - June 6.
You may have lots of questions. We have lots of questions. We will be getting out more information as it becomes available.
