PARCC Assessment Summit for Higher Education

PARCC Assessment Summit for Higher Education
September 13, 2013 – Marriott Hotel, Normal, IL

Implementation of CCSS and PARCC creates a clear need for collaboration between K-12 and postsecondary education. With PARCC 101 – PARCC Assessment Summit for Higher Education, we will bring together experts from other states and PARCC with key administrators from Illinois institutions of higher education to begin coordination work. We ask that institutions send your chief academic officer and your vice president for student services, key decision- and policy-makers who will be a vital part of postsecondary education preparing for PARCC.

PARCC 101 goals include raising awareness and understanding of PARCC, developing campus PARCC teams headed by high-level administrators, and addressing critical immediate questions such as:

What is the PARCC plan to accurately measure college readiness?
How do institutions with diverse missions optimize the use of students’ PARCC results?
How, using PARCC as a new opportunity, can institutions of higher education better partner with high schools?
