NJ Spotlight has complied the data released, on February 2, 2016, by the State of New Jersey regarding the results of the first-year PARCC exam scores and it appears that the scores left much to be desired.
“The overall numbers hardly come as a surprise; the state previously released statewide averages that saw a big drop in proficiency levels under PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) compared with previous state tests,” according to the article.
Additionally, “more than 10 percent of all students did not take the PARCC last fall, according to the data, with some schools seeing as many as three-quarters of their students not sitting down to take PARCC exams for whatever reason.”
