PARCC is an alliance of states working together to develop common
assessments serving nearly 25 million students. PARCC's work is
funded through a four-year, $185 million dollar grant from the U.S.
Department of Education. Partners include about 200 higher education
institutions and systems representing hundreds campuses across the
country that will help develop the high school component of the new
assessment and then put it to good use as an indicator of student
readiness. PARCC is led by its member states and managed by Achieve,
a nonprofit group with a 15-year track record of working with states
to improve student achievement by aligning K-12 education policies
with the expectations of employers and the postsecondary community.
PARCC's ultimate goal is to make sure all students graduate from high
school college- and career-ready. For more information, visit
