The PARCC consortium developed a fully online assessment that is administered to all Math and English Language Art students from grades 3-11. The PARCC exam is a state-mandated assessment that replaced the NJASK and HSPA exams. For Science, the NJASK8 and New Jersey Biology Competency Test (NJBCT) are in the process of being replaced by online assessments beginning in 2018.
