Reflection: Standardized Tests (PARCC/Smarter Balanced) Text structure: Reviewing the Assessment - Section 4: Independent Practice


PCR stands for Prose Constructed Response.  This is a new type of writing that will be assessed on the PARCC.  A PCR is a more developed response to reading.  It can be written in a variety of formats (i.e. article, essay, etc.).  Scholars need practice answering complex questions with complex texts in order to be prepared to respond to PCR's.  They are meatier responses and must be explicitly taught and practiced.  

Here is a link that explains what a PCR is and how it relates to PARCC.  Here is a link to show you how PCR's are scored on PARCC.
