The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a set of assessments that aim to better measure students’ critical-thinking, problem-solving skills, and ability to communicate. Through a series of high quality, computer-based K–12 assessments in Mathematics and English Language Arts, teachers, schools, and parents can rest assured that students are on track for success.

Barron’s is pleased to offer these newly revised study guides to help students prepare for these tests in the State of New Jersey. In our Grade 3 ELA/Literacy Test workbook, students will find:
  • Two full-length practice tests, one PBA and one EOY, with answers and explanations
  • In-depth review through engaging lessons, hints, and tips for all elements of each PARCC test
  • Content that is reflective of classroom lessons and fully aligned to the Common Core Curriculum
  • An explanation and overview of the PARCC assessments

The PARCC assessments were first administered during the 2014-15 school year. This Grade 3 ELA/Literacy Test workbook can be used at home or in school to reinforce classroom lessons and help put students in the best possible position for success.
