  • PARCC Assessments Replacing NJASK Grades 3-8 in 2014-2015  

    In 20114-2015, the PARCC assessments will replace the existing statewide assessments, the NJASK in grades 3-8 and HSPA in the high school.  New Jersey has been transitioning the NJASK to measure the CCSS over the past three years to provide local districts and schools the time necessary to shift practices and prepare students and educators for PARCC, which will measure the CCSS with fidelity in 2014-2015.
