Starting next year, students from New Jersey and 18 other states will take the PARCC assessment. PARCC data will play a significant role in determining if students are on grade level and can be promoted and/or graduate. It’s only a matter of time before teacher salary and/or job security is influenced, if not determined, by the PARCC’s data.
