The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a set of assessments that aim to better measure students’ critical-thinking, problem-solving skills, and ability to communicate. Through a series of high quality, computer-based K–12 assessments in Mathematics and English Language Arts, teachers, schools, and parents can ensure that students are on track for success.
Barron’s is pleased to offer these newly revised study guides to help students prepare for these tests in the state of New Jersey. In Barron's New Jersey Grade 8 ELA book, students will find:
Two full-length practice tests with answers and explanations
In-depth review through engaging lessons, hints, and tips for all elements of each PARCC test
Content that is reflective of classroom lessons and fully aligned to the Common Core Curriculum
An explanation and overview of the PARCC assessment
The PARCC assessments will be ready for states to administer during the 2014-15 school year. These versatile books can be used at home or in school to reinforce classroom lessons and help put students in the best possible position for success.
