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) still remain.
Below are some helpful resources regarding PARCC.
