At the May 20, 2014 meeting, I will provide an update to the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education on the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC).

The second testing window for this spring's PARCC field test is underway. The End-of-Year testing window began on May 5 and will continue through June 6. When completed, more than 81,000 students in Massachusetts will have participated in the field test.

I will also update the Board on the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education's continuing outreach to superintendents, principals, and teachers around our two-year "test drive" of PARCC and the opportunity for superintendents to choose to administer either PARCC or MCAS in their own districts in spring 2015.
