Try out test questions on the technology platform that students will use when taking the computer-based PARCC tests. Engage with the different types of items (drag-and-drop, multiple select, etc.) and computer based tools (calculator, highlighter, etc.) that will be available. Sample Items will not be scored.
The PARCC ELA/Literacy summative assessments will include one prose constructed response (PCR) item for each of the tasks that appear on the performance-based assessment component of the PARCC summative assessments. PARCC draft generic rubrics are available to score the three PCRs for Grade 3, Grades 4-5, and Grades 6-11.
Wait! Before you start, does your computer, laptop, or tablet have what it takes? The PARCC assessment works with many devices and browsers, but not all. Find out the technology guidelines here.
While the availability of some passages is limited temporarily due to pending permissions, PARCC is continuing to present all sample items to support users in better understanding item types and functionalities.
