Study: PARCC sets the tougher bar among shared tests
from Education Week
States adhering to the PARCC test's standards are setting higher expectations for students than those using SBAC or the ACT Aspire, a new federal study concludes. The study, released Thursday by the statistical wing of the U.S. Department of Education, maps states' cut scores — the point at which a student is deemed proficient — onto the testing scale used by the National Assessment of Educational Progress. This allows for comparisons of the tests' technical difficulty, despite variations in each test's emphasis and format.
