BUGC Announcements

  • February 27, 2015

     Dear Parents and Guardians:

     The State of Illinois has adopted the PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) as its new statewide assessment tool. This replaces the ISAT test in grades 3-8.  The PARCC assessment is computer based and is aligned to the new Illinois Learning Standards.  PARCC will assess students in the areas of mathematics and English/language arts. Testing will occur twice during this school year. A performance-based assessment (PBA) will be scheduled in March of 2015 and the end-of-year (EOY) assessment will be scheduled in May of 2015.

     

    The March dates for the PARCC Assessment at BUGC are:

    Make-up Testing as Needed

     Please note students will have a break between each assessment.  I encourage parents to provide a healthy snack which can be consumed during break time. 

     It is recommended for students to have a wired mouse to help navigate the assessment and headphones to listen to the audio portions of the assessment.

     More information about the PARCC Assessments can be found at http://www.parcconline.org/
