Rhode Island - Student Assessments: Mathematics
In 2014-2015, Rhode Island will introduce the new PARCC (or Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) assessments in mathematics. This assessment will replace the NECAP Mathematics assessment that we used for the past 9 years. Rhode Island also participates annually in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), known as the Nation’s Report Card, where a sampling of students (from grades 4, 8, and/or 12) are tested in several content areas as part of a nationally representative assessment of student performance. In addition, Rhode Island administers the American Diploma Project (ADP) Algebra II End of Course Exam, considered an important benchmark for college-bound students.
