**PAARC assessments were built to assess the mastery of Common Core State Standards (CCSS). **The mathematics assessment contains multi-step problems that require mathematical reasoning and problem-solving skills. Test scores define the level of mastery on the key grade level concepts aligned to common core standards of the state

**PARCC** Question Types

Students can expect to encounter three types of questions on the** PARCC** test:

- Type I – Questions assessing concepts, skills, and procedures. These questions test the core concepts, fluency, and their mathematical applications.
- Type II – Questions assessing the expression of mathematical reasoning. Students are expected to show detailed steps of solving ( these demonstrate their understanding and application of concepts)
- Type III – These are based on mathematical modeling and applications of core concepts in a In the given real-world context or scenario.

**PARCC **Math Assessments Grades 3–5 is aligned to common core standards
