Maryland Mathematics Assessments

​Students who attend Maryland public schools take yearly mathematics assessments in grades 3 through 8 and once in high school. Maryland is a member of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) consortium, which is a multi-state assessment consortium.  Educators from the consortium states work collaboratively to develop assessments.

The PARCC Mathematics Assessments include a mix of items that measure conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application and problem solving, as defined by the standards.

  • Test Specifications Documents
    Test specification documents help educators and the general public better understand the design of the PARCC mathematics summative assessments.
  • Practice Tests
    A practice test is available for grades 3-8, Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II.  The practice tests allow students to become familiar with the kinds of items and the format used for the tests.
  • Model Content Frameworks
    The Model Content Frameworks for Mathematics   describe the content knowledge, conceptual understanding and expertise with the Standards for Mathematical Practice a student should acquire each year.
