PARCC Practice Math Performance Based Assessments
PARCC has released the practice math performance based assessments (PBAs) starting from grade 3 up to Algebra II! Although we've been able to access the practice math end of year assessments (EOYs) for months, we've been waiting very patiently to see what the performance based assessments look like. Wait no further! Feel free to access any of the PBAs here.
Wondering how to use this new resource? The Teaching Channel has created an excellent video that uses PARCC's 'item analysis flow chart' as a planning procedure. The video, Planning Math Instruction with PARCC Tools, shows teachers collaboratively using sample assessment tasks to plan math instruction.
