PARCC Scores Interpretation & Analysis
Point Pleasant Borough School District students in grades 3-11 will again take the PARCC assessments in spring 2017! As a reminder, PARCC tests students in the areas of language arts and mathematics, replacing both NJASK and HSPA testing in those subject areas. PARCC offers a more rigorous assessment and is designed to measure students' readiness for college and careers.
2016 PARCC results were mailed to parents in early Fall 2016.
Should parents have any questions about the score reports, they may contact their buidling principal. The district scores were presented to the Board of Education on October 17, 2016. Click here to download the District Testing Results presentation.
