PARCC's Frameworks: Their Role in Curriculum Modules and Regents Exams (UPDATE Posted 7/9/13)
Although the Board of Regents has not yet determined if New York State will administer PARCC assessments when they are available beginning in the 2014-15 school year, the PARCC Model Content Frameworks at http://www.parcconline.org/parcc-model-content-frameworks are firmly rooted in the Common Core Learning Standards and college/career readiness. Therefore, all curricular and professional development resources produced by the State Education Department will follow these Frameworks, as will State assessments beginning with the 2013-14 school year. For more information on the role of the Frameworks please go to http://www.p12.nysed.gov/assessment/math/ccmath/parccmcf.pdf (pdf icon 56 MB)
