The Rhode Island Department of Education decided to abandon PARCC for Massachusetts hybrid MCAS-PARCC Assessment and the SAT.
Only three in 10 Rhode Island students were considered proficient in science despite adopting the Next Generation Science Standards three years ago.
Rhode Island’s Education Commissioner said no PARCC ELA assessments for 10th and 11th graders, but will still have to take the PARCC math assessment.
