Four years ago Hawthorn teachers began introducing Illinois Learning Standards into their lesson plans in preparation for a new state assessment that students will take for the first time in March.
The test, the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), is the new state assessment and accountability measure for Illinois students enrolled in a public school district. PARCC tests students understanding of the New Illinois Learning Standards. It will be administered to students in English Language Arts and mathematics. Students in grades 3 through 8 will take the test using school computers. The Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) has been retired.
For more on PARCC, please go to the Hawthorn Assessment page.
