Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers
http://www.parcconline.org/K12educators
In anticipation of the Common Core State Standards, the
Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers
(PARCC) seeks math teachers to

provide feedback on content frameworks

provide feedback on sample instructional units

pilot sample instructional units

pilot sample additional assessment tasks

participate in leadership cadres
PARCC is a 25state consortium developing a common set of K12
assessments in math and English "anchored in what it takes to
be ready for college and careers." These new K12 assessments
will build a pathway to college and career readiness by the end of
high school, mark students' progress toward this goal from 3rd
grade up, and give teachers timely instructional support.
