*PARCC – Performance Based Assessment (PBA)

As part of Massachusetts’ two-year “test drive” of PARCC, the Department asked school districts to choose whether to administer MCAS or PARCC tests in English Language Arts and Mathematics to students in grades 3-8 spring 2015; and later in 2015, the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education voted for the state to adopt PARCC for spring 2016.  For 2017, PARCC was eliminated and MCAS 2.0 was implemented.  Based upon the “legacy” MCAS and similar in format to PARCC, MCAS 2.0  is untimed and will be administered on computers to assess the Massachusetts learning standards.  Students will have access to the time they need to complete the assessment. MCAS 2.0 assesses English Language Arts (ELA) and Math, only. Science assessments are as they have been in the past, on paper and based upon “legacy” MCAS.
