  College and Careers (PARCC) to create a
  next generation assessment system that will
  ensure students across the country are

   when classroom instruction takes place and
   give feedback throughout the year
  Be computer based
  Include sophisticated items and performance
  Are designed to produce a more complete
   picture of student performance
