PARCC Seeks Comments on Math Model Content Frameworks
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is seeking a second round of public comment on the Model Content Frameworks for Mathematics as part of an on-going development process to ensure the frameworks meet the needs of educators, curriculum directors, and school leaders.
In November 2011, PARCC released Model Content Frameworks to inform item development and to support implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). That release was based on multiple rounds of feedback, including a public comment period in August 2011. The initial public review resulted in a number of conceptual changes in the frameworks, which are detailed through a recorded webinar and presentations.
In addition to seeking another round of comments on the November 2011 draft of the 3-8 Model Content Frameworks, PARCC is also seeking comments on newly created material for high school mathematics. Based on feedback gathered over the academic year, PARCC states have created materials that provide additional specificity around six high school courses. The newly revised high school Model Content Frameworks detail the standards, or parts of standards that make up the two course sequences and would be assessed in each course by the PARCC assessments.
· Fall 2011 Grades 3-8 Model Content Frameworks for Mathematics
· Revised High School Model Content Frameworks for Mathematics
The public comment survey for mathematics will be open until Wednesday, July 11.
PARCC will revise the frameworks during the month of July with the goal of releasing final versions later this summer. Once the frameworks are final, PARCC will hold public webinars to walk through the changes. Information about the webinars will be available on the PARCC website later this summer.
