State officials said results will come this month.

Preliminary statewide results from the controversial PARCC exam will be released later this month, the state Department of Education announced.

Officials did not specify a date, but detailed in a memo and powerpoint presentation resources for parents and educators to understand the scores and data. Oct. 23, PARCC will also release a version of the exam in each grade and subject that students took last school year. The exams will be released with scoring rubrics and sample student work.

PARCC or the Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers debuted last year and tests students in math and English based on the Common Core education standards. In many school districts, students boycotted the tests, in a protest against standardized tests and the stakes attached to them.

Class of 2019 won’t have to pass PARCC exams

Students can receive up to 850 points and will be scored from level one to five. Students who earn level four or above meet or exceed grade-level expectations. Parents will receive individual student results starting in November.
