Be sure to read the whole page because the text explains the philosophy of the new assessments and the powerpoint provides a nice summary. You will see a number of similarities between the information presented here and the implementation powerpoint that we posted. At the bottom of the page you will see the sample items.
They also refer you to this site where they will post additional sample items as they are created.
Also be sure to check out the illustrated tasks aligned to standards at
illustrativemathematics.org. This site was referenced in the PARCC frameworks, the documents that outline the content that will be covered in the assessments. If you have not seen the PARCC frameworks you print a copy or use the new interactive & searchable version at this site.

If approved by the Board of Regents, the PARCC assessment will be used in NY State beginning in 2014-2015.
